Working at Scotch Whisky Investments (SWI) means being part of one big family with the common passion in whisky investments! Our lines of communication are short and our doors are open. We extend a warm welcome to everyone. We do not like hierarchy; we like working with people who take responsibility and ownership of their tasks and who share ideas and come up with thoughtful proposals. Everyone has a voice and mutual respect is our guiding principle. Besides hard work, there is also plenty of room to enjoy and laugh together, especially during our fully catered lunch and Thursday afternoon drinks.
