History of the Teacher's 50 Blended Scotch Whisky

Although the standard expression from the house of Teachers is the Teacher's Highland Cream, the Teacher's 50, released in honor of India's 50th Independence Day contains a unique blend of single malt and grain whiskies is hard to come by.

The foundations for the Teacher's brand were laid by William Teacher in the 1830s, capitalizing on the newly passed Excise Act of 1823. He procured a license to sell whisky and began running a 'dram shop' where whisky lovers would stop by and feast on drams of their favorite whisky. Years later, when the Spirits Act of 1860 allowed more freedom for sellers to mix and create whisky blends of their own, William Teacher put his expertise to use by experimenting with several blends.

The Teacher's Highland Cream came into being during this time when William Teacher was positively satisfied with a peaty drink with a high malt content, a drink with a complex and rich flavor that made him considering naming it after his family name. After he laid the foundations for the Teacher's brand and created the quintessential Teacher's Highland Cream blend, William Teacher passed away in 1876, leaving the responsibility and the Teacher's' brand into the hands of his son, William Junior, and his younger brother, Adam.

Rampant growth under William Junior and Adam Teacher's authority saw increased sales and profit, the purchase of new land in 1895 to build a new distillery of their own in Aberdeenshire in 1897. Adam died a year later without witnessing the completion of his plans although by then, the Teacher's brand was well on its way towards glory. Surviving Prohibition, and a decline in the number of operational distilleries in Scotland, while also scripting victories by beginning to export Teacher's to the United States and the acquisition of the Glendronach Distillery defined the later years for the brand.

Fast forward to 1997, and the brand released the Teacher's 50, a 12-year-old blended whisky that commemorated 50 years of Indian Independence, strengthening their positioning in one of the world's most prolific whisky drinking nations.
