Dewars 25 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky

History of Dewar’s 25 Year Old Whisky
John Dewar Sr. established the Dewar’s brand in 1846, dealing in wines and spirits from Scotland and other regions. He was known to have carried out the practice of blending whiskies during the 1860s. He supplied these blends to restaurants and other establishments around Dewar’s store in High Street, Perth. John Dewar Sr. passed away in 1880.
The family business was left to John Sr.’s two sons, John Dewar Jr. and Thomas Dewar, who renamed the enterprise as John Dewar & Sons in 1886. Under the leadership of John Jr. and Thomas Dewar, the business thrived. The Aberfeldy Distillery was built in 1898 after a spike in demand left their previous supplier incapable of meeting demands.
The First World War and Prohibition brought a minor setback for the Dewar’s brand, which compelled them to join the Distillers Company Ltd. in 1925. The Dewar’s brand ceased to be a family-owned business over the years, changing hands from Guinness, which became Diageo and eventually being sold to Bacardi.
Currently, the Dewar’s brand is doing well under their parent company, having immediately undergone a rebrand after it was acquired in 1998. Dewar’s has historically been quite popular in the American markets through their value-for-money expression, the Dewar’s White Label and other expressions.
Industrialist Andrew Carnegie is believed to have sent a small barrel of Dewar’s whisky to United States President James Garfield’s inauguration at the White House. It is also believed that Carnegie repeated the same with President Benjamin Harrison in 1889.
