The Whisky Chairmen

Rory MacDonald

Proud Inverclyde local, Rory MacDonald, received a Start Up Loan of £13,000 through British Business Bank delivery partner Transmit in August 2018. This provided the essential tooling, materials, rent and insurances for Rory to open The Whisky Chairmen.

The Whisky Chairmen is a social enterprise based in Inverclyde, Scotland, making bespoke furniture from obsolete whisky barrels. Committed to tackling the spectres of poverty and social isolation within Inverclyde, they provide living wage employment for the local community in Greenock.

Each piece is hand carved from a whisky barrel – some of which are over 100 years old when they are finally ‘retired’. Unique and tailored to fit each customer, The Whisky Chairmen takes ‘bespoke’ to a new level of luxury, being able to source barrels that made your favourite malt, from the year you were born.
