Chanrossa has been managing, growing and investing in independent businesses for over 30 years. Historically, we have had focused on technology-based companies, however over the last five years have diversified our interests across unique, consumer-focused businesses with luxury products of provenance, authentic quality and global appeal.
Today we actively manage four operating companies, The Isle of Raasay Distillery, The Mill, Caskshare.com and Biebod TSL. We also own majority and minority stakes in a number of other companies across software, eCommerce, fintech, infrastructure technology and consumer goods.
Our aim is to continue developing our operating companies to become world-leading, luxury products while growing and realising our existing and future investments to deliver value for all Chanrossa stakeholders from its shareholders, employees and customers, to the communities we cooperate with.
It is important to Chanrossa to recognise and drive forward some of the major themes of today’s world. We focus on transparency and sustainability, and support businesses that promote diversity and allow for the creation and nurturing of long-term global relationships.
