DEWAR’S is one of the most respected in the world of Scotch Whisky.
Founded in 1846 by John Dewar senior, John Dewar & Sons Ltd has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in Perth, Scotland, to become a global brand.
DEWAR’S is famed the world over for quality blended whiskies and a flair for innovative advertising and promotions. Today DEWAR'S is the fifth largest Blended whisky brand in the world, and the top selling Scotch Whisky in the USA.
It was John Dewar’s dynamic sons, John Alexander and Tommy Dewar, who made DEWAR’S an international success. The brothers also founded the Aberfeldy Distillery in 1898, the physical and spiritual home of DEWAR’S, which to this day produces the Single Malt Whisky that lies at the heart of every DEWAR’S blend.
This full bodied Single Malt is renowned for its rich notes of heather and honey, flavors.
This full bodied Single Malt is renowned for its rich notes of heather and honey, flavors which can be detected throughout our current portfolio of well-balanced blends.
This restless pursuit of quality, and an obsession with blending excellence still persists. Today the firm is a world leader, and is one of the fastest growing premium whiskies in the world. Thanks to the exceptional skill of our Master Blenders, DEWAR’S whisky has long been known as 'The Medal Scotch of the World', with over 140 awards at competitive tastings.
In recent times new expressions have been developed to complete the DEWAR’S portfolio: DEWAR’S 12 year old Special Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky; DEWAR’S 18 year old Founder’s Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky; DEWAR’S Signature Blended Scotch Whisky; DEWAR’S 15 year old Blended Highland Malt Whisky, and ABERFELDY 12 year old and 21 year old Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.
The foundation stone of the portfolio is the WHITE LABEL blend, which was first created in 1899.

Dewar’s World of Whisky
When DEWAR’S World of Whisky opened in April 2000, it was hailed as "the ultimate Scotch whisky visitor centre". It continues to introduce visitors from all parts of the globe to one of the world’s foremost premium whisky brands, and to the art of making and blending Scotch whisky.
Through films, interactive challenges and displays, the DEWAR’S World of Whisky exhibition tells the fascinating story of how a local family created a global brand. The wit and wisdom of Tommy Dewar (1864 - 1930) continues to inspire the company, through his famous sayings - "Dewarisms". Today, DEWAR’S World of Whisky continues to celebrate his unique take on life, aiming to ensure visitors leave our spiritual home as committed Dewarists!
DEWAR’S World of Whisky has its home at Aberfeldy Distillery, the only distillery to have been built by the Dewar family themselves. Completed in 1898, this beautiful building stands amidst glorious Highland scenery, producing a perfectly balanced single malt whisky with heather honey notes. This renowned single malt lies at the heart of DEWAR’S portfolio of premium blends, and our visitors are able to see for themselves how it is made.
A full array of sensory experiences is rounded off by tastings from our range of gold medal winning Scotches - a fitting finale to a visit to DEWAR’S World of Whisky.
