E-COMMERCE company NSDesign is raising a dram to celebrate a new business deal with a self confessed whisky nut!
The Hillington-based designers were taken on by malt whisky ambassador Alan Mitchell, from West Lothian, to develop his lucrative online whisky business.
Alan’s company, www.straightfromthecask.co.uk is based in Linlithgow and began trading in April. It offers private tastings for functions, whisky walks, and tours. Alan plans to develop the capacity for the sale and purchase of malt online later in the year.
Gary Ennis, Managing Director at NSDesign, said:
“We were delighted to be working with Alan as this is not just his business but also his passion. We helped him to develop the brand behind ‘straight from the cask’, as well as designing and producing company business cards and stationary.
“It is crucial for a business like Alan’s to have a premium website, since this is the major source for his trade. We're glad to have helped play a part in someone making a living from something they absolutely love and are confident that he'll go on to make this a big success. “
Alan has over 37 years experience in business at all levels, and this combined with his absolute passion for malt whisky led him to start up straight from the cask. He has even earned a qualification as a “Single Malt Ambassador” at Bruichladdich Distillery in 2009.
“NSDesign was recommended to me by a friend, and I am delighted with their creativity and professionalism. My technical skills leave a lot to be desired so I was very glad to have Gary and the team on hand.
“I believe that my business will benefit from the first-class design that the company has provided. The instant feedback and availability of the team was outstanding throughout, and the end result not only exceeded my expectations but was also excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend NSDesign to anyone.”
