CURATORS OF THE WORLD'S MOST REMARKABLE SPIRITS:
we search for the exceptional, to share with our discerning customers. Our philosophy is demanding but meritocratic: the quest is for the liquid and not the label – constantly seeking that elusive but exhilarating blend of age, character and vitality.
THE LAST DROP DISTILLERS ARE SINGLE-MINDED ABOUT THEIR MISSION:
to seek out and collect remarkable spirits from around the globe, unfettered by house style or spirits category. There might only be enough liquid for a handful of bottles, but this is a quest for quality over quantity. Guided by expert ‘noses’, a life-long love of the finest spirits and a little help from numerous friends across the worlds of Wine & Spirits, The Last Drop draws a very strict line between the great and the merely good…
The Founding Families
The Last Drop Distillers was founded in 2008 by two icons of the spirits industry, Tom Jago and James Espey OBE. Their aim was to curate the world’s most remarkable spirits, finding treasures across different spirit categories and sharing them with those who seek the genuinely extraordinary. This passion for exploration and discovery continues to this day: Tom and James’ daughters: Rebecca Jago and Beanie Geraedts-Espey joined The Last Drop in 2014 to help share their fathers’ vision with a wider audience. Now, as Rebecca takes the helm, a staunch advocacy for excellence remains as much a personal mantra as a professional one. The Last Drop is driven by integrity, and each of its releases is saturated with stories of the journey.
The Last Drop Team
THE LAST DROP TEAM
The Last Drop Team is now led by Rebecca Jago, daughter of co-founder, Tom Jago. Working alongside Rebecca are Nick Morton (right) and Michael Cowman (left).
The team is committed to seeking out and bringing to our customers only the finest and most remarkable aged spirits, and to safeguarding not only the legacy of the founders but also the principles on which they created the business.
You will find us in the four corners of the world, talking to friends old and new, tasting extraordinary liquids and savouring the stories behind them.
Most important, however, is the joy that we all take in sharing our discoveries and stories with our customers and friends. We are all at the end of the telephone, or on email, and we take the greatest pleasure in hearing from our friends, wherever they may be.
We look forward to sharing a Last Drop with you all very soon.

It is with great excitement
that we announce the launch of our first ever Rum, and it is a real beauty. We have long sought a rum that was fitting of The Last Drop’s name, but it has been a challenge. Occasionally we have tasted something that we felt was close, but not until this treasure crossed our bows, to employ a nautical metaphor, did we feel we had found the real thing.

Our second Bourbon bottling,
this comes from the revered Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky, site of the oldest continually operating distillery in the USA. Before the distillery was renamed Buffalo Trace in 1999, it was known as the George T Stagg Distillery, and the then Master Distiller, Gary Gayheart, produced some truly exceptional whiskeys.
