Wilson and Morgan are one of the few independent bottling companies that are not based in Scotland. The company has an office in Edinburgh but is located in Treviso in northern Italy. Wilson & Morgan selects only the best malts from 10 to 30 years of maturation, sometimes after re-casking for finishing in port, rum or Marsala casks.
Founded by Fabio Rossi in 1992, it runs alongside his family wine and olive oil business. Fabio's father was one of the first people to seriously import whisky in to Italy during the 1960s and this is where his interest was started.
When in 1992 the world at large began to discover the qualities of single malt whiskies, Fabio Rossi saw that the time had come for another decisive step forward in the history of the Rossi merchant-dynasty and took this step by founding Wilson & Morgan.
Rossi began his discovery tour, roaming the Scottish Hiighlands, Lowlands and Island knocking on the doors of small, unknown distilleries as well as of those of world renown, talking to producers, traders and those "in-the-know". He bought every cask which he thought worthy of becoming a part of the Wilson & Morgan selection.
These malts are bottled at peak maturation and then shipped to countries all over the world, including Japan, France, Germany, Holland, Switzerland, and of course Italy, where today, they can be found in selected outlets, Michelin Star restaurants, wine and gourmet shops.
