With an impressive track record spanning nearly two decades in the alcohol industry, Director of Malts Danny Saltman embarked on a mission to redefine the whisky landscape and deliver an extraordinary collection to the market.
Driven by an insatiable passion for exceptional wine and whisky, our vision was to create an experience that would captivate not only our loved ones and friends but also whisky enthusiasts around the globe. Venturing across the scenic landscapes of Scotland, we meticulously handpicked rare, aged casks from remote distilleries, ensuring that each one held a distinctive tale waiting to be savoured.

At DS Tayman, our commitment to excellence is unwavering. As an independent bottler renowned for our craftsmanship, we meticulously select each cask based on its unique appearance, aroma, and flavour, ensuring that every dram tells a remarkable story. What sets us apart is our pioneering spirit—being among the first in the world to introduce a kosher wine finish to our whiskies, certified by three esteemed kosher authorities.

Initially inspired by a desire to cater to the discerning tastes of the Jewish community, our whisky's exceptional quality and character transcended boundaries, captivating whisky enthusiasts in 19 diverse markets worldwide. Today, our reach knows no bounds as we proudly share our passion for whisky with connoisseurs across the globe.

Step into the world of DS Tayman, where tradition meets innovation, and each sip unlocks a symphony of flavours that leave an indelible mark on your palate. Join us on this extraordinary journey as we continue to redefine what it means to indulge in the art of fine whisky.
