The famous Dewar’s signature blend delivers a deeper, smoother profile with more than a dozen years in the casks.
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.
As solid as Dewars White Label is, some folks think that’s all that Dewar’s makes. And that’s a shame, because that’s where the range of Dewar’s Scotches begins. A couple steps up the age range you’ll find Dewar’s 12 Year Old. Like the entire range, the formulation starts with their classic range of up to forty Single Malts and grain Spirits. And after a dozen years each, they are blended to perfection and then married for up to six months longer until the flavor unifies.
The Aberfeldy Distillery is the heart and soul of Dewar’s Scotch and home to their visitor experience center.
