“If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."  

Issac Newton, 1675  

We take great pride in our adoption and adaption of time-honoured production techniques to craft our whisky. Our single malts reflect that history – they build foundations of mastery and artistry that were laid in the past.  


Now, in recognition of the impact that past events play in the shaping of our world today, we’d like to invite you to embark on a journey through the corridors of history, guided by the wisdom of those of dared to dream and defied status quos.  


Crafted with admiration, and drawn from our growing inventory of fruit-forward single malts, the Shoulders of Giants pays homage to a diverse tapestry of thinkers, innovators and visionaries whose contributions to our world and society continue to resonate to this day.  


The Shoulders of Giants releases showcases the growing maturity and complexity of our single malt whiskies, with each giant offering its own distinctiveness – both inside and outside of the bottle.  


The first Shoulders of Giants bottlings consist of 3 releases for the UK (available directly from our website) and 3 releases for Poland which will be available from selected Polish retailers. 




Dickens – The Novelist  

We celebrate Charles Dickens’s contribution to our appreciation of literature with an exceptional American oak ex-bourbon cask. Offering vibrant sweet tropical fruits, a syrupy honied texture and perfectly integrated wood spice, it is a reflection of the growing maturity of Bimber’s single malt whisky. 


Newton – The Mathematician  

Sir Issac Newton’s contribution to our understanding of science is marked by a lightly peated Bimber that has been matured in a 1st fill American oak ex-bourbon cask. This release is fruit-forward and classically Bimber, with notes of pineapple and papaya weaved with delicate threads of smoke and char. 


Shakespeare – The Playwright  

We recognise William Shakespeare’s contribution to the English language with the first release of our barley wine ‘ex-beer’ cask finish. Produced in partnership with France’s La Debauche brewery, this remarkable Bimber single malt offers a rich and bold profile which combines stone and tropical fruits with smooth caramel, complex maltiness and hints of nutty umami on the palate. 





Copernicus – The Polymath  

We honour Nicolaus Copernicus’s contribution to our understanding of astronomy with an additional maturation in an indulgent single Pedro Ximénez sherry cask. This unmistakable cask has delivered notes of dried fruits, dates and rich chocolate on top of our trademark tropical fruit character.  


Chopin – The Composer  

Frédéric François Chopin’s contribution to our appreciation of music is celebrated with an additional maturation in an exquisite single Fino sherry cask. This distinctive release offers rich, nutty undertones alongside a crisp core of zesty fruity.  


Curie – The Scientist  

We offer a tribute to Marie Curie’s contribution to our understanding of radioactivity with an additional maturation in a delightful single oloroso sherry cask. Offering figs and raisins alongside caramel, dark chocolate and subtle undertones of oak, this release is combines our house style fruitiness with the true character of oloroso sherry maturation.  



Bimber’s Shoulders of Giants single malt whiskies will be released soon!
