There might only be enough liquid for a handful of bottles, but this is a quest for quality over quantity.

Our History

c. 2008

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 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.

Nothing gives me quite as much pleasure as seeing the delight and surprise when someone tastes one of our remarkable spirits for the first time.
