About Glen Moray

Glen Moray is double distilled in their copper stills, on the banks of the River Lossie, as it has been for 125 years. Then, with skills passed from generation to generation, their craftsmen carefully age Glen Moray in their traditional warehouses. Experts in maturing and marrying many different types of casks, they create the array of flavours which inspire our extensive range.

About Parfums De Marly


Parfums de Marly draws its inspiration from the century which celebrated the pinnacle of French elegance: the 18th century, the reign of perfume. The story begins with Julien Sprecher, a lover of perfumery and the splendors of the 18th century. It was from this passionate union that Parfums de Marly was born in 2009, a house of bold creations, a new vision of French luxury in opposition to standardization.
