Celebrating 130 years: Black Dog!

Today, let me take you through the pages of History, the history of the world’s finest Scotch whiskey, the Black Dog! The year 1883 marked the birth of one of the greatest Scotch whisky. This was the year when History was made. It’s 130 years since then and Black Dog Scotch Whisky is one of the finest International Scotch Whiskey across the globe. It was born when James MacKinlay of the second generation of the Leith Scotch Whisky blending family in Edinburg launched the masterful Scotch whisky Royalty by the name of Millard Black Dog. It is said that in the year 1883 Sir Walter Millard, a Scot from the British East India Company and a connoisseur traveller came searching for the perfect Scotch and eventually discovered the great taste of this whisky in these misty shores of Scotland. He moved from the dramatic highlands to the remotest islands, and from the fertile lowlands to the rich spey valley and returned home from afar to pursue his two passions, Angling and Scotch Whiskey!

Being a keen angler, Walter Millard named the whisky Black Dog in honour of his favourite salmon fishing fly used in the Spey and Tay rivers of Scotland since the early 19th century. Today, the spirit of Sir Walter Millard lives on under the watchful eyes of Richard Paterson, the Master Blender and Distiller. A total of 25 scotch Whiskies from Islay Campbeltown and the lowlands, matured in American White Oak, and European Sherry oak, and married together to create perfection! It is a Black Dog is a 100% genuine Scotch whisky distilled, matured and blended in Scotland and as soon as you open the cask you are greeted with its hallmark aroma. Today, any social gathering is incomplete without this ‘Golden beauty’, as I like to call it!
