About Moon Import

Moon Import was founded by Pepi Mongiardino in 1980. Heeding the advice of the late, great, Silvano Samaroli, he opted to be “free from the big companies,” and became the official distributor for Islay’s Bruichladdich, and later Tamnavulin and Tullibardine, preferring however to procure casks from private owners. Moon Import now occupies an important place in the pantheon of historic whisky greats, and we are delighted to bring this unrivalled collection to market in this exclusive auction along with this unique, premium tasting experience.
