Since its inception in 2000, Compass Box Whisky Company has been stewarded by John Glaser, one of the most progressive and innovative whisky blenders of his generation. "Like a winemaker blending grape varieties, we can create layers of complexity by blending whisky," says Glaser, who was named "Innovator of the Year" four times by Whisky Magazine. In addition, Compass Box won a 2014 Drammie Award for Most Exciting \ Innovative Whiskey Producer \ Bottler:
While Glaser initially began his career in the industry as a marketing agent, he quickly realized that by blending quality whiskies, he was able to create a product that was greater than the sum of its rare parts. The Compass Box Gift Set makes the perfect gift for the holidays! "Above all, share and enjoy," says Glaser.
