Chanrossa is a privately owned and independently minded company. Building on over 30 years of entrepreneurial business management and investing experience, we are developing our brands, businesses and complementary investments to grow a long-term and sustainable business that owns luxury products of provenance, quality and global appeal.
Today we actively manage three businesses - The Isle of Raasay Distillery, Mott & Spring, and Caskshare.com. 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 brands to deliver world-leading, luxury products and services, while growing and realising our existing and future investments. This will 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.
Isle of Raasay Distillery
The first legal distillery on the Isle of Raasay in northwest Scotland. We are setting out to create the finest Hebridean Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Gin, and a unique whisky tourism destination.
We hold majority and minority investments in a number of adjacent businesses that complement our core operating companies.
Consumer & eCommerce
We have founded, and held various Executive and Non-Executive positions in a number of successful exits including Teledata (sold to Scottish Telecom), AboveNet (sold to Zayo), iomart (floated on LSE:AIM), DVDs365 (sold to LoveFilm), HitDynamics (sold to Hitwise), Cupid (floated on LSE:AIM), Immotion Group (floated on LSE:AIM), Digitalbox Group (floated on LSE:AIM) and Maxymiser (sold to Oracle). In addition to these exits we have a growing early stage investment record. We are keen to investigate co-investment opportunities with other experienced people and teams, especially where the investment opportunity adds value to any of our existing activities or investments.
