Dewar’s 25 belongs beside the finest blended Scotches in the world.

John Dewar Sr. founded the company in 1846. But it was when his two sons — John Dewar Jr. and Thomas Dewar took over the business that it really took off. The lads expanded the brand into a global market leader by the end of the century with attention to detail, a fine product, and quite frankly some brilliant marketing. Along the way they pioneered the technique of "marrying" where a blended Scotch is re-casked to allow for a period of aging together. And there have been a few mergers and acquisitions along the way, but the company is now owned by Bacardi who largely leave them alone to work their magic across six major Scotch and Single Malt brands. 

Did you even know that Dewar’s had a twenty-five your-old offering? The first version of this ancient dram was formulated by former master blender Tom Aitken. A few years ago, the mantle was picked up and updated by the current master blender, Stephanie McLeod. And quite an accomplishment it is. Stephanie has collected the finest, oldest casks from across Scotland and finished the Spirit in Royal Brackla casks to frame a perfect expression of Dewar's signature style.


Smartass Corner: 
Stephanie McLeod is Dewar’s first female master blender and one of a handful of successful women to hold this position in the Spirits industry.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
