Scotch, travel, food, lifestyle

The Three Drinkers do Scotch Whisky is a drink- focused travelogue, where three friends embark on an adventure through Scotland. From Dufftown to Islay, they journey through breath-taking landscapes as they visit some of the newest and most historic distilleries in the land.

From reindeers to Scottish dishes you can’t even pronounce, the series is packed full of humour, personality and flavour. Deemed by critics as the ‘Top Gear of drinks’, The Three Drinkers is for a new, global audience, from twenty one to ninety one.

Three friends, zero pretence, 100% edutainment.


The series includes four episodes in total, the first three of which were filmed in Islay and the highland regions of Scotland including Speyside. Within these episodes, The Three Drinkers showcase the distilleries, the people and the incredible landscapes of the country. The fourth episode was filmed in London taking in key landmarks as the trio visit a selection of iconic whisky and cocktail bars.

Why Now?

Consumers today expect much more when it comes to the products they buy. They want an experience; to feel inspired and emotionally connected to something they drink or eat.

The growth of streaming services such as Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu make it much easier for these products to come to life. And why Scotch? It’s experiencing an all time high in terms of global popularity.

According to Forbes, export sales reached over $5.5 billion in 2017 and Scotch sales grew 8.9% by value. While scotch accounts for over 20% of the UK’s food and drink industry, the US remains the largest importer of the dram with over $1.1 billion in Scotch whisky sales.

Now is the time.
