Celebrating 130 years – History behind Black Dog Scotch Whiskey
Never thought I will write about luxury and lifestyle. However, here it is. I will write some stories, some histories and everything around it.
It all started around 130 years back when the great scotch made its way to the world. It’s believed that in 1883, Sir Walter Millard – a scot by birth; started searching for the perfect blend of Scotch and then discovered it across the shores of Scotland. This rich blend which was created by James McKinley who belonged to second generation of Leith Scotch-Whiskey blending family (based in EdinBurgh) and together with Sir Walter Millard launched the Scotch-Whiskey by the name Millard Black Dog.
Black Dog scotch whiskey is a blend of elegant Whiskeys from Highlands, Spey Valley, Islands and lowland regions of Scotland. Till date and even after 130 years, the tradition of blending remains the same and every ingredient and the process has remained the same. All this happens till now under the watchful eyes of Richard Paterson, just as Sir Walter Millard had begun. Black Dog is considered to be 100% genuine Scotch-whiskey distilled, matured and blended in the lowland regions of Scotland. Black Dog is now available in the best bars across the world and marking it as quality International Luxury Brand.
Since Sir Walter Millard was an Angler, this perfect blend was named Black Dog in honour of his favourite salmon fishing fly used in the Spey and Tay rivers of Scotland since the early 19th century. The name and the brand lives on as One of the world’s finest Scotch Whiskey.
