One of our favourite drinks available from the fully licensed bar in The Classic Lounge at Bridge Classic Cars is Coachbuilt Whisky. If you haven’t tried it yet, you really should.

Coachbuilt Whisky

Founded by Formula 1 driver Jenson Button and whisky expert George Koutsakis, Coachbuilt aims to create a whisky that reflects the craftsmanship of coachbuilding. The art of constructing bespoke car bodies is a unique skill and taking that view into whisky production results in a product that is not only high in quality but also full of character and history.

Coachbuilt Whisky is a blend of single malts and single grains from five whisky regions of Scotland: Islay, Speyside, Highland, Lowland, and Campbeltown. Each region contributes its unique flavours and characteristics, creating a well-balanced blend.

The production process of Coachbuilt Whisky involves careful selection and blending of whiskies that have been aged in a variety of casks, including bourbon, sherry, and wine. This varied maturation process enhances the complexity of the final product, adding hints of vanilla, dried fruits, spices, and even a hint of smokiness. The result is a whisky that is smooth, rich, and versatile.

Coachbuilt Whisky’s branding and packaging also pay homage to its automotive inspiration. The bottle design is sleek and elegant, a clear nod to classic car aesthetics, and the logo features a coachbuilding hammer, symbolising the craftsmanship that goes into every bottle.

Since its launch, Coachbuilt Whisky has demonstrated the successful collaboration between two individuals from seemingly different worlds – racing and whisky – brought together by a shared passion for excellence and quality.
