Our founder is a first generation Cuban-American who became one of the first Hispanic people in history to create a scotch whisky brand. Carin Luna-Ostaseski set out to create a scotch whisky brand that would change the way people think about the category. She decided to seek these new horizons in the form of a grand tour of her local whisky purveyor – 300 bottles of whiskies and countless tasting events later, she became a dedicated student of this sublime spirit. Carin eventually left her 17-year career as a creative director and successfully funded SIA Scotch Whisky on kickstarter.com, pursuing her dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur and one of the first Hispanic people in history to create a scotch whisky company.

Born of tenacious ingenuity and supported by those that believed in her cause, Carin’s story is the embodiment of the American dream and continues to inspire everything we do as a brand today. Inspired by our founder's entrepreneurship journey, SIA Scotch Whisky has always supported minority small business owners by providing capital and mentorship and inspiring them to achieve the unexpected.
