Compass Box was founded in 2000 and has continually pushed the boundaries of what is possible with a mission to make the world of Scotch whisky a more interesting place. Compass Box’ contemporary and disruptive positioning is underpinned by transparency, innovation, and independence — characteristics that are rarely seen within the Scotch whisky segment and that lead to the brand’s cult-like following among U.S. and European whisky drinkers. In 2023, Compass Box was ranked the World’s 5th Most Admired Whisky brand by Drinks International.

Cælum is a majority shareholder of Compass Box. The Cælum team partnered with Compass Box in April 2022 in order to help the company realise its true potential as an independent, disruptive Scotch whisky brand.
