“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
― Mark Twain
Let me introduce ourselves ...
We’re Ken and Lou Jaremco, and we’ve been partners in life and business
for 40 years. We’ve traveled the world in pursuit of business opportunities
and for pleasure, and after decades in the manufacturing business we think
we’ve found the perfect retirement project. Best of all, it’s all about
whisky: our love of whisky, our friendships with the people we’ve met through
whisky, and our desire to save precious drams of whisky from going down
My first exposure to scotch was J&B in the late ‘70s. I developed a taste for
it and decided I should explore other brands, which at that time were limited
to blended scotch. One Christmas, Lou bought me a bottle of Chivas Regal
It was as good a gift as a man could ask for. I drank blended scotch for many
years and continue to do so as the mood strikes me.
Then, one fall day, our neighbours Michael and Barbara Smith changed our lives forever when Mike introduced me to single malt scotch. This was nearly 20 years after my introduction to blended scotch and I never looked back. Over the years that followed, Michael and I enjoyed hundreds of different single malts and never found a bad one. Some are better than others and some have an acquired taste. There are so many ways to describe them: smoky, peaty, sherry, oaky, hints of citrus, vanilla, spices, chocolate, coffee, honey-flavoured, and so on. At first, these are difficult to detect, but over time taste profiles became easier to identify. Mike shared freely his vast collection of knowledge and spirits in the manner in which it was meant to be shared: unreservedly and without conditions....
We are always happy to hear from our customers.
