I'm Boris – founder of The Whisky Kingdom and long-time whisky aficionado.
I had my very first whisky tasting in 2013. Just shortly after that, I got passionate enough about it to start going to whisky festivals around Europe. For me, very few drinks compare to a dram of smoky Islay whisky. However, it's not a secret that I have a soft spot for one brand in particular. Ever since that day in 2013, I have been an avid Lagavulin fan. For this reason, you can see me at Fèis Ìle every spring – in years when it’s being held, that is.
One thing led to another, and in 2018 I got the chance—and honor—to bottle a single cask of Lagavulin together with several fellow malt enthusiasts. In order to make it happen, I had to start a company. This is how The Whisky Kingdom was born. It was inevitable that my hobby would one day turn into a business, but I’m glad my favorite whisky is what started it all.
Today, The Whisky Kingdom is a place for exclusive spirits. I make sure to track down bottles of high quality that you won’t typically see in a store. Every cask that I bottle together with Wu Dram Clan needs to convince us with a strong character, from nose to finish. My motto is simple: Quality before quantity.
I’m glad you’ve found your way to my corner of the spirits universe. Take a look around and feel free to get in touch.
