New Indie Scotch Bottler Infrequent Flyers Lands In Aus

Infrequent Flyers Bottle Design

The first expressions from independent Scottish bottler Infrequent Flyers have landed in Australia, with whiskies from Craigallachie, Glen Elgin  and Macduff part of the shipment.

Infrequent Flyers is run by Alistair Walker, son of Scotch whisky identity Billy Walker (GlenAllachie, ex-GlenDronach/BenRiach). Both Batch 1 and 2 of the series have been released internationally and a minuscule amount of those single cask bottlings have been held back for Australia. A larger allocation is expected for Batch 3, which is due to arrive later in the year.

They are being imported by Ben Baranow, who is also manages Adelphi and Ardnamurchan for Australia.

Alistair Walker began in whisky in 1997 in a marketing and sales role for Burn Stewart Distillers before joining his father Billy at the BenRiach Distilling Company in 2004. Following the sale of the group to Brown-Forman and his father’s purchase of GlenAllachie, he stepped out on his own in 2018 to launch the Infrequent Flyers indie bottler. The moniker refers to the plan to source distilleries who are lesser-seen as single malt and single grain expressions.

The whiskies will be available through independent specialist stores and bars, the latter social distancing restrictions permitting.
