Our Story

My family represents three generations of working with wax; by this point it runs in our blood. My Grandad was a candle/mould maker with a factory in Newbridge. This is where my father, Ian, worked for years in his early life, picking up a vast wealth of experience with wax-related products along the way. After falling ill in the late 80s, Roderick decided to hang up the wicks for good and retire.

Oakbank Products inception

In the early 90s, Ian bought a big shed in an area of Livingston called Oakbank and started Oakbank products. In those first days, Ian put his candle making knowledge to good use. However, later on, he noticed a gap in the market for sealing wax. Already having a love for whisky, it seemed like the perfect marriage. In no time Ian would be traveling to distilleries and bottling halls up and down the Uk to seal rare limited edition bottles. Or sometimes even training the staff at these facilities on how to do it. Being an amiable young man with a passion, he built a bit of rep as ‘the wax guy’ and enquiries for his services became more and more frequent.

1997 saw the first release of a long-lasting series from Aberlour, The A’bunadh. This project spearheaded a change in focus for Ian towards bottle sealing wax. Over the next decade, he had the pleasure of working on some of the most recognisable brands and prestigious projects to date. He produced seals for the likes of the Macallan’s Fine Oak and Easter Elchies range, as well as the Glenfiddich 40/50 year. He also produced sealing wax for popular ranges from Aberlour, Brugal and Sipsmith Gin.


After Ian’s untimely passing in 2014, I’d continue working at my father’s original company for the next 8 years. Once I realized working there was no longer conducive to myself or the clients I left.
I decided to walk away from the company – a company I’d been so closely tied to my whole life, that I’d poured so much of myself into and helped build, with nothing other than the freedom to start again with my own spin on things. That’s why I started Oakbank Wax.

About Us

A new company with an old heritage


I love the work, the distilleries I visit and the people I meet along the way. I even enjoy the smell of the melting wax; I find it nostalgic. Over the last decade I’ve gained a wealth of experience. Not only with the product but also with the clients, who range from small craft businesses to global drinks powerhouses.

A fresh start 

After leaving my father’s original company due to negative team dynamics, I wasn’t ready to give up the work; I saw it as an opportunity to start again and put my spin on things. Our mission statement, which stays true to the pillars on which Ian founded Oakbank Products – To provide only the highest quality product and build lasting relationships with our clients.
