- First crowdfunded Scotch Whisky in history, successfully raised almost $50,000 on kickstarter.com
- Founded by the first American woman to ever create a Blended Scotch Whisky company
In a terrific twist of fate, Carin Luna-Ostaseski came to love Whisky through…a break-up. When her relationship ended, she found herself every Friday after work at her local Whisky shop, choosing to spend her “couples-counseling money” on a few really nice bottles of Scotch Whisky instead. By the year’s end, she had almost 300 bottles, and was cured!
She became a student of Whisky and hosted tasting events for many years. Carin soon discovered people were ready for a new whisky, one that would change the way people think about Scotch. A whisky that is affordable, accessible and absolutely delicious, and SIA Scotch was born.
