About Dewar’s

Established by John Dewar in 1846, Dewar’s is one of Scotland’s best-known and most-awarded blending houses, and it is innovation that has driven the company’s reputation for more than 150 years. And that reputation is an impressive one: Dewar's blended Scotch whisky has amassed more than a thousand awards in its century-and-a-half.

Ageing has always been at the heart of the Dewar's philosophy, and the people behind the whisky pride themselves on the fact that every expression that bears the Dewar's name also bears an age statement.

The Dewar’s Aromatic Highball

Putting a fresh spin on a classic, this Highball recipe layers extra fruity and herbaceous notes on top of the flavoursome 12 Year Old.


  • 30ml Dewar’s 12 year old
  • 20ml sweet vermouth
  • 10ml Bénédictine


Add all ingredients to a chilled glass filled with ice, then top with soda. Stir once and garnish with a lemon slice.


The heart of the blend

In 1896 the sons of John Dewar planned to build a distillery to ensure they always had a core for their sought-after blended whiskies. They settled on a site just outside the village of Aberfeldy, from which the distillery would take its name. The site had excellent access to water from the Pitilie Burn and excellent transport links to nearby Perth plus, on a more sentimental note, it was just three miles from where John Dewar was born.

Production began in 1898, and since then Aberfeldy has not only gained a place as the heart of the Dewar’s blends, but is also a much-loved single malt in its own right.

    Quite pleasant. Sweeter than the other popular 12 year old blends, and more suited to sipping neat than mixing or with ice to my taste.

    Add some drop of water and it will become a perfect daily sipper. Sweet, balanced blended whisky that is nicely priced. Quaffable.

    In this Dewar's 12, you can feel quality in what you're drinking, nothing seems to be artificial. it's one of the best Blended whisky I have tasted, with a discrete smoke in the finish. As the eternal begginner I am I would say, in a blind test, it was a fine single malt.
