Black Bottle

Unique and only blended scotch whisky

Black Bottle blended Scotch Whisky.

Black Bottle, the only blended Scotch whisky which has all the renowned single malts from the Isle of Islay balanced by the finest Highland, Lowland and Speyside malt and grain whiskies.

This is one of the most unique whiskies around as there are few, if any, which come close in terms of style. The whisky has been praised by critics, whisky-lovers and connoisseurs from across the world, and over the years it has secured a cult following for its unique taste. 

Black Bottle’s unique taste owes its character and heart to the innovation and skill of Gordon Graham, its original master blender. A tea merchant, Graham’s ability to blend tea soon moved to the blending of whiskies in the late 19th century.

This particular blend, which he marketed in opaque black bottles, was imported from Germany and it quickly became the whisky of choice for the locals in Aberdeen.

The outbreak of the First World War in 1914 forced the company to source new bottles and since that date Black Bottle has been packaged in a green glass bottle, retaining the distinctive pot-still shape. 

Black Bottle whisky is available from leading liquor outlets countrywide, at around R200 a bottle.
