Brian and Carol Crook established the Vintage Malt Whisky Company in 1992 as an independent bottler operating out of Milngavie, Glasgow. Five years later the pair founded the Highlands & Islands Scotch Whisky Company as a sister business, under which the Ileach, Pibroch and Black Cuillin brands were launched.
C S James & Sons was formed in 2005 as a subsidiary of Highlands & Islands to act as a holding name for the Crooks’ new Islay Storm single malt whisky.
With the popularity of Islay malts rising, Islay Storm was relaunched in 2017 with a more contemporary personality.
