THE JJ WHITLEY STORY
You could be forgiven for believing the Whitley story began as late as the 20th century. Yet around 150 years prior, our first generation of family distillers made their mark.
The Whitley family boasts over eight generations of distilling heritage, dating back to 1762. John James Whitley was the Managing Director of Greenall Whitley & Co Ltd and G&J Greenall Ltd until 1942. His grandmother, Isabella, was the daughter of Edward Greenall, Chairman of Greenalls & Co, and son of the Greenall’s founder, Thomas Greenall.
