J&B’s tale is one forever challenging convention; their history rooted in romantic ambition and entrepreneurial innovation. J&B’s reputation of doing things their own way inspired their style, built an empire and immortalised their pioneers.

At the heart of this was a young salesman and a big leap of faith for J&B. Eddie Tatham, initially imprisoned for smuggling J&B into the country during Prohibition, went on to use every channel available to put J&B in the hands of the rich and famous. Eddie created the J&B lifestyle and helped it grow into biggest whisky brand in the country.

J&B has almost always been in the hands of people ready to do things different. Now, centuries later, it’s time to invest in others who share the same spirit.
