Whiskybase

From a humble beginning of a young lady who enjoys her whisky to being the 1st independent bottler of scotch whisky in my home country Malaysia is quite a feat! It is beyond my wildest dreams. This has not been possible without the guidance and motivation from my family and my husband, Luc Timmermans whom is a whisky connoisseur and collector as well as an independent bottler himself under the handwritten label, Thosop.

My first introduction to Scotch single malt whisky was during a dinner with my wine and whisky drinking friends. They offered me a dram during dinner and I politely decline the whisky quoting that I do not like whisky. They managed to convince me that the single malt whisky that they were offering me is not like anything I have tasted during my teens or those that I drank at a club. Having convinced that I will change my mind about whisky, I took a sip of the dram and to my surprise, I LOVE IT! It was a Port Ellen 25 year old from an independent bottler but sadly I could not remember the cask number.

Who could have thought that my first single malt whisky is from a closed distillery and also an independent bottler?!! Maybe it was fate that brought me to start my very own whisky adventure. After all, whisky has played an important part in my life at every level. I wouldn’t have met my husband if it was not for whisky and I would still be slaving behind my desk at the office working for somebody if it was not for whisky. Whisky changed my life and now I would love to change whisky scene in Malaysia by introducing them to a world of wonderful independent bottlings.
