About this deal

This unique blend is made from all grain distillates from 1972, before being matured in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled in 2021 at approximately 48 years old. In 1876, a year after bringing the three partners into his firm, James Anderson became the senior partner.

When friends or new acquaintances meet over a drink, the conversation enviably leads to the swapping of stories. Often appears in 1970s and 1980s Italian films, which, in part, probably contributes to the popularity in Malta. Some mention that it' s not as rich as Jamesons, but it is sweeter, and that it makes a decent breakfast whiskey. Just four years earlier Britain had been rocked by the Jacobite Rebellion when Bonnie Prince Charlie had launched an invasion of England from Scotland.The blend contains more than 40 individual whiskies, with Speyside malts at its core, and in particular its ‘heart malt’ Knockando, along with Auchroisk. One of the first projects saw the reintroduction of a breeding pair of black rhinos into Malawi, one named ‘Justerini’ and the other ‘Brooks’. Thomson was named after James Gibson Thomson who, in 1875 brought three partners into his firm: James Anderson and brothers, John (later Sir John) and Andrew Usher.

There’s a good reason this whisky is so popular, it’s smoothness on the palate and wonderful warmth. This is a blend of 42 malt and grain whiskies across Scotland, with a large proportion coming from Speyside.Eddie's adventures were dealt another blow when his friend and supporter, the Chairman, Hugh Anderson, died in August 1930. This light, Speyside-style blend has grassy notes, with crystalized lemon slices, Bramley apple peel, woodsmoke, and almonds. The fact that America was under Prohibition made this an audacious, potentially foolhardy plan but he set sail for America. Partly thanks to his wife's inheritance, he was also very wealthy and viewed owning a fine wine and spirits company as much a lifestyle choice as it was an entrepreneurial investment.

pegs in a flight knocked me off to another world for 3 hours and I bought 2 from the duty free when I landed. William Cole and Thomas Walker may not have been so interested in the sourcing of their scotch whisky as they were Bordeaux wines but they hit lucky as their supplier was J. The General Wine Company is a family-owned and operated wine merchant in Liphook, Hampshire, England. The new Coffey stills were not only more efficient and produced much larger quantities of spirit than the traditional pot stills (used to make malt whisky) but the grain whisky the Coffey stills made was much lighter in style.

The year after the Italian who'd started the business left, the company was awarded its first Royal Warrant.

Chivas Regal 12 year is recognisable because it’s lighter than your average dram, has a distinct sweet aroma and a smoky character, distinguishable on the palate which releases elements of all the different flavours behind its blend. Monkey 47 uses wild grown, hand-picked sloe berries from the Black Forest in Germany and each single batch is distilled over a three month period to guarantee a perfectly blended taste. The Opera House sat on Haymarket near the corner with Pall Mall and such was the patronage of Italian opera that it was renamed The King's Theatre [from 1867 it wold become Her Majesty's Theatre in honour of Queen Victoria].Even though the company was now run by Johnson and Johnson (George and his son Augustus) their company retained its Justerini name. Johnnie Walker, Tommy Dewar and the other great whisky barons were quick to recognise the benefits of branding and marketing their blended whiskies.
