Cælum has brought in Maurice Doyle as the new CEO of Compass Box to partner with the Founder, John Glaser, in the continued development of the business.

It is a brand that I have long admired as a pioneer within Scotch whisky. I have a huge amount of respect for John and what he has achieved,” says Doyle.
Founded in London in 2000, Compass Box is a reflection of Glaser’s personal vision for what the future of whisky making should be. John Glaser was named by Whisky Advocate as one of the “Thirty Innovators Who Shaped Today’s Whisky” and one of the only Two alive today. “With Maurice joining me at the helm, we are excited to double-down on our determination to democratise the enjoyment of Scotch whisky, to continue releasing products that reveal the creative art behind blending,” says Glaser, who has described the Compass Box mission as, “fighting…what I call the ‘single malt hegemony.’”
