History of Dewar’s 15 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
John Dewar was a merchant who operated out of his store in Perth, Scotland. The store, founded in 1846 would go on to become the John Dewar & Sons, one of the most prominent houses of blended Scotch whisky in the country.
Back in the day, John Dewar’s proprietary blends had begun to gain popularity in and around Scotland. Soon, he was joined in the business by his son John Alexander. He helped his father grow the family business, and took over the business in 1880 after John Dewar passed away. John Alexander’s brother Thomas joined the business in 1884, and together they helped popularize the Dewar’s brand name worldwide.
The North American markets, especially the United States of America which is a critical market for Dewar’s, was introduced to the brand in 1891. Andrew Carnegie sent a keg of Dewar’s blended Scotch to two United States Presidents on the day of their Inauguration.
Curiosity and demand for the Dewar’s brand of Scotch whisky was claimed to have skyrocketed in America after these incidents. Today, Dewar’s White Label is said to be the highest selling blended Scotch in the United States of America.
By 1896, the demand for Dewar’s had exceeded their production, and this led to the construction of the Aberfeldy distillery. Single malts produced by the Aberfeldy continue to be the fingerprint whisky for all Dewar’s blends even today.
The Dewar’s brand became a part of Distiller’s Company, eventually becoming a part of Guinness, and later Diageo when it formed in 1997. The company was sold to the Bacardi group in 1998 and continues to remain one of their most coveted whisky brands.
