John Dewar & Sons are now finally available in South Africa!
This true family business originated in the Scottish Highlands in 1892, founded John Dewar. John later left his business to his sons, Tommy and John – and they grew this brand into a global success story.
“More than a century later, Dewar’s dedication to craftsmanship and time-honoured traditions remain vital to the creation of our classic character and keynotes of our whiskies,” said Master Distiller Stephanie Macleod. “What makes Dewar’s true Scotch is it was the first blended Scotch whisky to be branded and bottled, and we are proud to say that it is still crafted in the same way today as it was in 1846. Dewar’s has had a Royal Warrant from every British Monarch since Queen Victoria in 1893 which makes us unique. We’re looking forward to giving South African Scotch drinkers the same royal treatment.”
I like the sound of that!
Four products from the John Dewar & Sons Fine Scotch Whisky Emporium are now available in South Africa. Dewar’s 12-year old (known as “The Ancestor”) and 15-year old (“The Monarch”), as well as a limited edition 12-year old and 18-year old from the renowned Aultmore Distillery.
