How Mark & Manny got into bottling whisky

Save the Lars Homestead

After restoring the Lars Homestead in Tunisia - which was not just us, but also included Terry Cooper, Mark Cox, Robert Cunningham, Michel Verpoorten and - to some extent - Colin Kenworthy - we were invited to present a panel at the Star Wars Celebration Europe in Essen (Germany) on the 25th July 2013.

Being whisky aficionados for so long, we felt it would be a great idea to present the rest of the crew with a special surprise. This, of course, became a bespoke bottling that sparkled the idea for the Save Lars whisky trilogy.

MMM - Mark & Manny's Malts

We were so inspired by the popularity of our whisky trilogy, that we decided to take it a step further and launch a very limited series of bottlings ourselves under the banner MMM, Triple M for short or Mark & Manny's Malts in full. So in 2016 MMM was born. Our Animal Series - 4 releases of 50 bottles each - sold out in a matter of hours every time.

We continue our hunt for great single casks and hope to do so for many more years.

In May 2016 we released our first bottling. While the hunt for the third cask was on, we released our Interludium Gin to get through the summer, to be followed by our third and fourth whiskies.

In 2017, we released our second series of single casks in the Galaxy Series, as well as another batch of our Interludium Gin. All of the MMM releases can be seen below.

All releases by Mark & Manny's Malt are limited to only 50 bottles.
