Dewar’s White Label Blended Scotch Whisky
This bottle is from the 1950’s and is in mint condition, the box is somewhat frayed at the top. A great collectors piece, these bottles are seldom presented as new. The blend was created by A.J. Cameron the first Master Blender of the brand.
Dewar’s was founded by the canny John Dewar in 1849, but it was his two sons who really created the legacy.
With their construction of Aberfeldy Distillery in 1896 and Tommy Dewar’s relentless around the world advertising road show, the brand became very famous indeed. Tommy wrote a successful book on his travels while hawking his blended hooch. He sailed to the States, traveled from one side to the other, made the journey to Hawaii, Fiji and thence to China, with a stopover in New Zealand and Australia. Then Hong Kong and back to Scotland for a haggis. in 1895…
He was knighted in 1902 and continued to live a thoroughly awesome life, the longest resident of the Savoy London (ever). He was known affectionately as “Whisky Tom” and occupied his remaining time on earth breeding racehorses, becoming Baron Dewar, the Sheriff of London, and general ladies man. He died unmarried and with a huge smile on his face. Inspirational stuff.
