This expertly blended Scotch Whisky owes its reputation to a finely honed recipe and a large dose of Victorian know-how. BLACK BOTTLE Master Blenders gently marry a select group of malts with strict attention to peaty Islay’s, then double mature in charred virgin oak barrels for a distinct rich smoky flavour like no other. All part of a refined set of blending techniques we like to call ‘Ingenious Alchemy’.
