Founded in 1846 by John Dewar, 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, 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 DEWAR’S is one of the fastest growing premium whiskies in the world.

Thanks to the exceptional skill of our Master Blenders, DEWAR’S whisky has become the most awarded blended scotch whisky in the world.
