Classic Dewer’s Scotch aged more than two decades in a remarkable four-step process to generate the ultimate in smoothness.
Dewer’s is a legend. The famous brand was founded in 1846 by John Dewer Sr. The brand expanded rapidly under the cooperative leadership of his two sons — John Dewer Jr. and Tommy Dewer. Now owned by Bacardi, Dewers is famous for pioneering the concept of marrying — assembling a blend and then returning it to the cask to homogenize together. The core White Label has a massive on-premiss distribution, making it the most popular blended Scotch Whisky in the US and fifth-largest world wide.
Dewer’s issued a set of three "Double Double" releases. They call their "normal" aging process "Double Aging." This "Double Double" aging was invented by Master Blender Stephanie Macleod and is very time consuming. First the Single Malt and single grain Spirits are aged separately in oak. Then the Single Malts are blended and the single grains are blended together — each aging a bit longer in oak. Then the blended Single Malt is marrying with the blended grains and they are aged together again. Finally, the Whisky is transfer to Oloroso Sherry casks for a final bit of finishing. Dewar’s Double Double 21 Year Old is all of that time and attention applied to components aged a minimum of twenty-one years and bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.
Spirits sales are defined as either on-premiss, off-premiss, or D2C. On-premiss is when the Spirit is sold to a bar or restaurant to be served in individual drinks. Off-premiss is when it is sold at a liquor store of grocer by the bottle to be consumed at home. Direct-to-Consumer (D2C) is when it is shipped directly to the consumer without passing through a store, bar or restaurant.
