The finest Sherry flavors in honor of the birthplace of blending.

You know we love a good heritage story, especially if it’s about one of Scotland’s oldest Whisky families. Spanning through generations of Whisky brokers, blenders, bottlers and distillers, this one takes place on the island of Islay. William Walker worked with Islay distillers in the early 20th century and eventually moved to the island. Stanley P. Morrison started working as a trainee Whisky broker in Walker’s company and married his daughter Elizabeth. Besides opening up his own brokerage, Stanley also bought Bowmore, Islay’s oldest distillery. Then, under W. Brian Morrison, Morrison Bowmore became a global brand and it was eventually purchased by Suntory. Today, it’s Jamie and Brian Morrison that own and head Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers that produce several high-end brands, including Old Perth.

Created to honor the birthplace of blending a.k.a. the Scottish city of Perth, this beautiful bottling blends the finest of Sherry-aged Malt Whiskies from select distilleries in the Glenlivet region of Speyside. Prepare for lots of Sherry-sweet flavors of stewed fruits and spicy orange marmalade in this vibrant 12YO Whisky. In 2022, it won Gold at the International Wine and Spirits Competition. More than worthy of a place in your collection.

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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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).
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
