Duncan Taylor & Co. was founded in Glasgow in 1938 as a merchant and broker of Scotch whisky casks within the industry. The key figure in the company was Abe Rosenberg, American distributor of J&B blended whisky, who within 30 years grew the brand to 3.5 million cases. Rosenberg was a fanatic of malt Scotch whisky, he predicted its popularity in the early 1960s and purchased casks of new fillings for laying down and maturing in warehouses all over Scotland. Upon his death in 1994 the company had over 4000 casks in bond ranging from 20 to 40 years old, unquestionably one of the largest privately owned collections of rare and aged whiskies. The business was mothballed for several years and eventually sold to Euan Shand in 2002. Upon acquisition the company ceased brokering whisky casks and concentrated on producing and marketing its own brands.
