Founded in 2020 by Peter Bignell (Belgrove Distillery) and Co, The Remnant Whisky Company is an independent bottler. Below is the facetiously redacted story regarding the creation of the Remnant Whisky Company, coming hot of the back of the scandalous behaviour that saw the temporary collapse of The Nant Distillery as we knew it over a decade ago, that led to the birth of ‘The Scoundrel, Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky’
“A little over ten years ago ————- started a scheme to help finance growth of his fledgling whisky company ————-. It is possible in those early days that ————- intentions were good but it wasn’t long before ————-, given a big endorsement by Whisky Bible author Jim Murray, was in financial trouble and ————- was selling empty barrels and stealing from other barrels to bottle and sell. Fast forward a little and those investors left with the remnant of the failure were stuck between a rock and a hard place due to ————- refusal to fulfil ————- contracts in place with investors.
Enter Peter Bignell of Belgrove Rye Whisky fame and his hastily formed consortium. Peter, a gentleman if ever there was one, felt the pain of the ————- investors and put together a rescue deal to purchase the barrels and set out to blend and bottle the whisky that almost never saw the light of day”.
