UK: Easy Drinking Whisky Co. founder quits
By just-drinks.com editorial team | 3 August 2006
One of the three founders of upstart Scotch producer The Easy Drinking Whisky Company has decided to leave the company.
David Robertson said yesterday (2 August) that he wanted "to pursue a career elsewhere". He said he remains "completely supportive" of the Easy Drinking Whisky Co brand, which will continue to hold his name.
He said: "I leave the founders and idea originators, Jon and Mark, to man the ship and wish them all the very best and feel confident that the brand will continue to go from strength to strength."
The company has won praise for its role in building the nascent blended malts category with its innovative styles and brand names, including The Rich Spicey One, The Smokey Peaty One, and The Smooth Sweeter One.
