Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen

The Cotswold Distilling Company Ltd.


The Cotswold Distilling Company Ltd., The Cotswolds Distillery, Stourton, Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire, England, UK.


Founded and owned by Daniel Szor the distillery was opened in summer 2014 but it had been a long time coming… Dan had been born in Manhattan, New York, USA and pursued a career in Finance, spending a decade in Paris, France before moving to London, UK in 2006 with his British wife Katia. During this time he started to become familiar with Scottish Whisky through regular visits to distilleries. He also fell in love with the Cotswolds, a beautiful area of England, and ended up purchasing a farmhouse as a weekend retreat from his busy city life as a Hedge Fund Investment manager.

One Sunday in the summer of 2012, looking out of his farmhouse window and gazing at barley growing in a nearby field, Dan had the beginnings of an idea to combine the barley, living in the Cotswolds permanently and his love for Whisky. Having followed the craft distillery movement in the USA and now the UK he set about setting up the first one in the Cotswolds with the company incorporated by the summer of 2013. Today the distillery is gaining momentum with the help of a small team of distillers (including Head Distiller Alex Davies previously from Williams Chase) and several consultants (Scotsmen: Harry Cockburn previously from the Bowmore Distillery on Islay and Jim Swan a world expert in the maturation and aging of whisky). They have released several products and have been making large amounts of Whisky, the first expected to come to market in the fall of 2017.
