Our Story

Maltdaq was founded by Chris and Gwenan Dee. Both are veterans of the Wines and Spirits industry with more then 50 years senior experience between them. Chris was CEO of IWSC Spirits Supermarket of the Year, Booths Supermarkets and recently Director of Food & Home at Harrods. Gwenan was founder publisher of Decanter.com. They are supported by Tobias Gorn, an award-winning spirits and cigar writer and authentication consultant, as well as a small team of trained whisky verifiers.

Maltdaq was created to help create a trusted marketplace for collectible whisky where pricing is fair and completely in the control of its members. By verifying every bottle and ensuring members are genuine, Maltdaq creates trust on both sides of the transaction.
