Rest & Be Thankful Company


Until it was sold in 2012, we had represented the iconic Bruichladdich distillery on Islay. We frequently drove from Glasgow to catch the ferry to Islay and passed the beautiful Rest and Be Thankful on the A83.

The origins of this evocative name always fascinated us and we learnt that it came from a stone inscription made by soldiers as they completed construction of the old military road in 1753 ; a road out of Glen Croe that was so long and steep that it was traditional for travellers to rest and repose at the highest point.

Upon hearing of this, we knew there could be no better name of our whiskies and rums – they should be slowly savoured and enjoyed and invoke that sense of

“Rest and Be Thankful


Hence our philosophy - Rest & Be Thankful is not just the name of beautiful locations in both Scotland and Jamaica; the name evokes images of fearless toil and striving from days gone by and the joy and gratitude felt when the job was done. We try to harness this spirit in our Rest and Be Thankful spirits - be brave and enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done.



Whiskey is our first love. It's what we know, it's what we grew up with, and it's pretty much everything we've been involved with throughout our working lives. But then we discovered the world of rum and an initial interest first became a passion and has now become an important part of our business.

And given that the actual place - Rest and Be Thankful - exists in both Scotland and Jamaica, it's a great coincidence that this is the name of our brand that celebrates the best whiskeys and rums.

Our small batch and single cask bottlings are always additive and colorant free and are un-chill filtered to deliver the true identity of the aged spirit.
