The concept for Chief’s Son Distillery was born through a combination of opportunity and passion, yet it was ultimately built on a captivatingly true and powerful story of chance, risk and passion... but also history, love and family.

The distillery was established in 2013 by Stuart and Naomi McIntosh, and after three years of testbed success, the first commercial batch of single malt whisky was distilled at the current Somerville location.

Whisky is a powerful spirit that forges deeper connections between people, families and generations. In our family whisky has been a common thread throughout the ages. For the past 500 years of our family’s long history, whisky has been at the epicentre of love and laughter, life and death, tears and triumphs.

Our ancestors transformed exactly the same ingredients, utilised the same ancient craft and derived the same level of enjoyment as we do today. Going forward, whisky reaches so far forward past our futures, connecting through the generations.

Our surname, McIntosh, or Mhic an Tòisich in Scottish Gaelic actually means ‘Son of the Chief’. This battle honour was awarded to our family 900 years ago for ongoing loyalty to the Chiefs of Alba (Kings of Scotland).

We are passionate about loyalty, the intergenerational meaning of our name and passing on the love of whisky from generation to generation.
