Dewars 18 Years
A rather indulgent post-dinner dram, our abundantly flavoursome Dewar’s 18 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky has picked up awards all over the world since it was introduced to the range in 2003.
From the highlands : Aberfeldy, Macduff and Royal Brackla. From the speyside : Craigellachie and Aultmore. From the lowlands : single grain scotch whiskies.
John Dewar founded his business in 1846 and was an early pioneer of the art of blending single malt and single grain whiskies together to make a Scotch that was fine, smooth and never varied.
When his son John Alexander took over running the business, he appointed A.J. Cameron as Master Blender. It was Cameron who pioneered the technique of allowing the single malts and single grains to "marry" together in vintage oak casks for several months after blending. This process makes our Scotch incredibly smooth, with the many layers of flavour in perfect harmony.
Each of the whiskues we use for The Vintage blend must have reached the age of 18 to be eligible for inclusion. By that time the angels will have helped themselves to most of it, but the flavour of what is left for us will be powerfully concentrated.
We are proud to have been suppliers to the Royal household for over 100 years and in that time we've become the most awarded blended Scotch in the world.
