THE SAVOY’S TOM WALKER REIMAGINES HERITAGE COCKTAILS TO CREATE THE DEWAR’S ‘TRUE SCOTCH’ COLLECTION – Scotch Whisky News

THE SAVOY’S TOM WALKER REIMAGINES HERITAGE COCKTAILS TO CREATE THE DEWAR’S ‘TRUE SCOTCH’ COLLECTION 

AA Dewars

Glasgow, Scotland, September 2014 – DEWAR’S(R), the world’s most awarded blended Scotch whisky, has collaborated with award-winning bartender, Tom Walker, to create the DEWAR’S TRUE SCOTCH collection – whisky cocktails inspired by heritage recipes, reimagined with a contemporary twist. 

Tom Walker, bartender at The American Bar in The Savoy in London, which Tommy Dewar regularly frequented during his 26 year stay at the hotel, poured over classic cocktail bibles and picked through archive serves to select a series of heritage whisky cocktail recipes. He then adapted these with modern ingredients, techniques and garnishes to create the DEWAR’S TRUE SCOTCH collection. 

The collection perfectly captures the DEWAR’S philosophy – TRUE SCOTCH SINCE 1846™ – and the brand’s status as the definitive blended Scotch whisky, distinguished by its peerless provenance, quality and craft. 

Tom Walker comments: “The DEWAR’S TRUE SCOTCH collection was inspired by a cocktail-making ideology of ‘imaginative simplicity’ that is synonymous with the era and style of Harry Craddock – one of the most famous cocktail barmen of the 1920s and 1930s, who tended The American Bar when Tommy Dewar resided here at The Savoy when building works commenced on his former property at St James’s Street. Like Harry’s, the cocktails in this collection are classically styled and each can be traced back to some of the most iconic Scotch cocktails ever created, including the Rob Roy, Old Fashioned and Whisky Sour. However, each has an imaginative and untraditional twist that gives this collection of DEWAR’S cocktails a completely contemporary edge.” 

The collection brings to life the craftsmanship of bartending and the remarkable heritage of DEWAR’S, while also raising a toast to the redesign of the whisky brand’s packaging and bottle design. This recent visual evolution to the Scotch brand founded by John Dewar in 1846 took it into the future, as the TRUE SCOTCH collection has done with the most classic of cocktail recipes. 

The new packaging illuminates DEWAR’S remarkable heritage, enabling consumers to hold a piece of the DEWAR’S story in their hands every time they pick up a bottle. This story is expressed in every detail – from the bold colors, stoppers and seals to the bespoke typeface – all inspired and sourced from the extensive brand archive in Scotland. The most distinctive feature of the new DEWAR’S look is the trefoil Celtic truth knot that has been embossed onto the glass of every bottle. A powerful visual representation of DEWAR’S strength and longevity shows three interlocking ‘D’s that represent the three founders who first created the whisky – John Dewar and his sons, John Alexander Dewar and Tommy Dewar. 

The DEWAR’S TRUE SCOTCH collection can be enjoyed at The American Bar in The Savoy, or recreated at home with the recipes below: 

SCOTCHLAW 

“This is a riff on the Scofflaw – a cocktail originally made with American whisky. The serve reflects a time when blended Scotch started to become popular in the USA, mainly thanks to the work of Tommy Dewar, at the end of the 19th Century. This was the same time that a liquor tax under the guise of ‘Raines Law’ was also introduced.” 

2 oz DEWAR’S White Label

3/4 oz lemon juice

3/4 oz Noilly Prat(R) dry vermouth

1/2 oz Grenadine

2 dashes of Angostura bitters

Egg white 

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and blend to emulsify the ingredients. Add ice, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupette. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve. 

RUBICON 

“This takes inspiration from the ‘Malecon’, a drink by Erik Lorincz. The Rubicon is a Scotch sour made with completely untraditional ingredients, specifically the lime and port. The bitters give the drink length, and the egg white provides body and texture. The name is a reference to the cross over into using alternative ingredients, and thus creating an alternative whisky sour.” 

2 oz DEWAR’S 12 Year Old

3/4 oz lime juice

3/4 oz Dow’s Fine Ruby Port

1/2 oz sugar syrup

3 dashes Angostura bitters

Egg white 

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and blend to emulsify the ingredients. Add ice, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupette. Serve naked. 

RAEBURN RICKEY 

“The name of this drink chimes with the surging popularity of classic Scotch cocktails named after famous national luminaries, such as the Rob Roy and Bobby Burns. This time our luminary is Henry Raeburn – a Scottish portrait painter that Tommy Dewar favoured. The use of lime and Drambuie create a drink that is refreshing and rich in equal measure.” 

1 1/2 oz DEWAR’S White Label

3/4 oz lime juice

3/4 oz Drambuie(R)

1/4 oz simple syrup

Soda 

Add the first four ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Shake hard but briefly, and strain into a Collins glass. Top up with soda, garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime wedge and serve.

About DEWAR’S Blended Scotch Whisky 

Founded in 1846 by John Dewar, DEWAR’S(R) has grown from a small wine and spirits merchant shop in the Highlands of Scotland, to one of the largest Scotch whisky brands in the world. Best known for its iconic DEWAR’S White Label, the best-selling blended Scotch whisky in the United States, the portfolio has expanded to comprise a portfolio of premium and super-premium whiskies, including DEWAR’S 12 Year-Old, DEWAR’S 18 Year-Old, and the exclusive DEWAR’S Signature. 

DEWAR’S 12 Year-Old, DEWAR’S 18 Year-Old, and DEWAR’S Signature are all crafted using the DEWAR’S double-ageing process. Pioneered by Dewar’s in 1899, it involves returning the hand-crafted blend to vintage oak casks for further maturation. The result is a smoother taste with a long, lingering finish; an extra step that is simply worth doing. A taste that wins medals and applause everywhere, making DEWAR’S the world’s most-awarded blended Scotch whisky. 

The DEWAR’S brand is part of the portfolio of Bacardi Limited, headquartered in Hamilton, Bermuda. Bacardi Limited refers to the Bacardi group of companies, including Bacardi International Limited.

Highland Queen 1561 30yo at Single Malts Direct – Scotch Whisky News

Highland Queen 1561 30 Year Old Blended Whisky 40% ABV | 70cl

Save over 40% (RRP £120.00)

IWSC Gold Medal Winner 2014

Highland Queen 1561 has been produced using traditional cask maturation, where the malt and grain whiskies are blended together and then recasked into barrels for further maturation for a period of at least six months.
This allows the whiskies to marry together perfectly to give us an incredibly smooth blended whisky. This is a superb example of a vintage, traditionally produced super premium Scotch whisky.

“The result we leave, with confidence to your judgement”
 
Tasting Notes.
The sweetness from the sherry cask comes through on the nose, together with notes of butterscotch, leather and spices. We can also detect hints of cinnamon and apple. In the mouth the whisky is exceptionally smooth and elegant, there are hints of smoke and an underlying flavor of cinnamon apple crumble. The finish is long and elegant.

1994 Benriach 19 Year Old K&L Exclusive PEATED – Scotch Whisky News

kl_logo_trans

  • 1994 Benriach 19 Year Old K&L Exclusive PEATED Single Bourbon Barrel #7187 Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml ($149.99)
    When we originally picked out this cask back in the Spring of 2013, we were incredibly excited about the wonderful balance of sweet, round, fruity Highland flavor, balanced by a delcate whisper of peat (think Talisker level smoke, not Islay). The result was something in between Talisker 18 and peated Glen Garioch: lovely layers of grains, a soft, supple mouthfeel, and a finish of campfire smoke with butterscotch on the backend. We couldn’t wait to get this baby delivered. Then it showed up and there wasn’t a smidge of peat to be found. It turns out Benriach had sent us the wrong cask (a delicous, light-bodied 19 year old that we kept nonetheless). We were fine with the 1994 barrel as it was indeed tasty, but we still wanted that magical peated barrel, so we put in the order again; this time for Cask #7187. Over one year later, that whisky has finally shown up and it’s still as fantastic as we remember. At 53%, the extra proof is enough to brighten all of the edges, but low enough as not to interrupt the amber waves of grain. It’s a seamless whisky; one that floats over the palate in layers of stonefruit, sweet barley, and smoke, as each element undulates in and out of focus. There’s a reason we keep going back to Benriach for their direct barrel program. Imagine if you could get cask strength Talisker 19, or Caol Ila 19, or unsherried Highland Park 19 year old whisky for $150. That’s what this cask of Benriach 19 year old is offering you.

Diageo Special Releases 2014 – first look

The eagerly-awaited line-up of the Diageo Special Releases 2014 has been announced. There are a total of 11 bottlings this year, including the four usual suspects (Port Ellen, Brora, Lagavulin and unpeated Caol Ila), a couple of first-timers (Strathmill and Singleton of Glendullan), and the first premium no-age-statement entry (Clynelish).

Full 2014 range

Full 2014 range

The full range of Diageo Special Releases 2014

I tasted this year’s range at a pre-launch presentation last week. We will post full tasting notes after the official launch, but here are my initial impressions. The prices quoted are the RRPs, but we won’t know our exact prices until they arrive: Strathmill 25 Year Old

Strathmill 25 Year Old

Strathmill 1988. 25yo. 52.4%. 2,700 bottles. RRP £275.

Strathmill makes its first appearance in the Special Releases – apart from the Manager’s Choice and Flora and Fauna bottlings, this is the first official release in recent times. Matured in refill American oak, this is sweet and creamy, with a whack of vanilla from the oak, and showing the grassiness that is the distillery’s hallmark. Rosebank 1992 / 21 Year Old

Rosebank 1992 / 21 Year Old

Rosebank 1992. 21yo. 55.3%. 4,530 bottles. RRP £300.

Some of the last whisky to be produced at the distillery which closed a year later, this has been aged exclusively in refill American oak, and is fruitier and sweeter than the 2011 release, while also being more complex and chewy. It has a creamy texture and displays notes of tangerine, which turn to pineapple when water is added.Cragganmore 25 Year Old

Cragganmore 25 Year Old

Cragganmore 1988. 25yo. 51.4%. 3,372 bottles. RRP £299.

Cragganmore makes its first appearance in the Special Releases since 2010′s 21 year old. Aged in refill American oak casks with new ends, this is rich with spicy wood notes and a creamy texture, which develops with a little water. Singleton of Glendullan 38 Year Old

Singleton of Glendullan 38 Year Old

Singleton of Glendullan 38yo. 59.8%. 3,756 bottles. RRP £750.

The distillery is making its first appearance in the line-up and this bottling is also the oldest in this year’s range. This was distilled at a higher cask-filling strength of 68.5%, hence the high strength even after 38 years. This is subtle and elegant on the nose but explodes on the palate. It is warming without water, but the strength is not overpowering and neither are the wood tannins. It is laden with menthol notes and is spicy on the finish. Benrinnes 1992 / 21 Year Old

Benrinnes 1992 / 21 Year Old

Benrinnes 1992. 21yo. 56.9%. 2,892 bottles. RRP £240.

The flavours in this release are the most likely to divide opinion. Aged in ‘Bodega European oak’ (Diageo-speak for a first-fill sherry cask), this is big, meaty and salty (think Bovril). With added water, the saltiness dissipates to reveal dark chocolate. This isn’t a whisky for the faint-hearted, but will please those who love bold, sherried whiskies. Clynelish Select Reserve

Clynelish Select Reserve

Clynelish Select Reserve. 54.9%. 2,964 bottles. RRP £500.

The first premium no-age-statement Special Release, this is a combination of five vintages and five wood types: three types of American oak (first-fill, refill and rejuvenated) and two types of European (refill and bodega). With the current debate around NAS whiskies, this is bound to cause some controversy. Bottled without an age statement due to the mixture of ages (however, we do know that the youngest is 16 years old), it has been created solely with a flavour profile in mind. It’s incredibly complex – a classically waxy Clynelish with spicy oak notes right to the end.

Caol Ila Unpeated 1998 / 15 Year Old

Caol Ila Unpeated 1998 / 15 Year Old

Caol Ila Unpeated 1998. 15yo. 60.39%. 10,668 bottles. RRP £75.

The first releases of unpeated Caol Ila were unexpectedly smoky. It’s been reducing year-on-year and there’s hardly any in this year’s release. I found this surprisingly easy to drink for a whisky at 60%, and for me it was better without water. Incredibly fruity on the nose, the palate is creamy with an orange note, and black pepper present right to the very end of the finish. Brora 35 Year Old

Brora 35 Year Old

Brora 35yo. Distilled 1978. 48.6%. 2,964 bottles. RRP £1,200.

The 13th release of Brora was aged in a combination of refill American and refill European oak. Closer in style to the 2012 bottling, rather than last year’s earthier expression, this is elegant yet complex, displaying the trademark Brora waxiness along with sweet wood tannins and, with water, notes of tropical fruit. Caol Ila 1983 / 30 Year Old

Caol Ila 1983 / 30 Year Old

Caol Ila 1983. 30yo. 55.1%. 7,638 bottles. RRP £425.

My personal favourite from the set, this stands out from the crowd, especially at this price. Aged in a combination of refill American and refill European oak, the first note is of menthol cigarettes and freshly cut grass. Initally absent, the peat slowly builds and builds right to the very end of the finish. Tasted blind, I would have said it was either a Brora or a Port Ellen – combining the waxiness of the former with the chamois leather note of the latter. Lagavulin 12 Year Old / 13th Release

Lagavulin 12 Year Old / 13th Release

Lagavulin 12yo. 13th Release, bottled 2014. 54.4%. 31,428 bottles. RRP £80.

One of the stalwarts of the series, the 13th release is very different to last year’s. Aged in refill American oak, the texture is mouth-coating with notes of dry ash and iodine. Much drier than previous bottlings, with tar and struck matches combined with a hint of meatiness, the latter more prominent when water is added. Port Ellen 1978 / 35 Year Old / 14th Release

Port Ellen 1978 / 35 Year Old / 14th Release

Port Ellen 14th Release. Distilled 1978. 35yo. 56.5%. 2,964 bottles. RRP £2,200.

The highest-priced entry in the range and the one that’s the most sought-after. The 14th release is more elegant than last year’s: the wood tannins are subtle and the chamois leather not as prominent as one expects from Port Ellen, but that’s not a bad thing here. Incredibly complex, with notes of Oxo cubes, and a cinnamon spiciness that continues to the end of a very long finish.

This year’s range is – once again – outstanding. The two Caol Ilas are the standouts for me – the unpeated for its approachable nature and the 1983 for the sheer complexity and intensity. The Benrinnes may not be to my personal taste, but there are plenty that will love it. The line-up ticks all the boxes, including three closed distilleries and a couple of distilleries where expressions as a single malt are rare. Diageo have shown that they are able to produce a wide range of whisky styles – sweet and fruity (Strathmill), sweet and rich (Rosebank), rich and spicy (Cragganmore and Clynelish), sherry monster (Benrinnes), fruity and spicy (Caol Ila Unpeated), rich and peaty (Caol Ila 1983 and Brora), rich and spicy (Port Ellen and Lagavulin) – and this year (for me at least), they’ve created some masterpieces that are indeed special.

SAZERAC ANNOUNCES BOND & ROYAL SPIRITS COMPANY – American Whiskey News

 Royal Bond

SAZERAC ANNOUNCES BOND & ROYAL SPIRITS COMPANY 

September 11, 2014 (Chicago, IL) – New Orleans- based Sazerac Company announces an exciting addition to their current family of companies- Bond & Royal Spirits Company- focused on developing brands within the specialty and craft spirits space. 

From the bar, a company was born.  In 1850, Aaron Bird moved into the Merchants Exchange Coffeehouse and rechristened it the Sazerac Coffeehouse; then began to acquire and market brands of liquor.  He bought the rights to Peychaud’s Bitters in 1873.  In the 1890s his company began to bottle and market the Sazerac cocktail, now made with rye whiskey instead of brandy. In addition, the company operated the Sazerac Bar on Royal Street.  Later, Thomas Handy’s former secretary, C. J. O’Reilly, chartered the Sazerac Company.  Ever since (except for a stint as a delicatessen and grocery vendor during Prohibition), the Sazerac Company has distilled an ever-increasing line of fine spirits.  Today, we are still an independent, American family owned company and proud owners of many of America’s most venerable distilling and spirits companies—Bond & Royal is the newest addition to the family, aiming to further build on the company’s rich history and heritage. 

The new company will immediately be dedicated to nurturing and building existing brands identified as players within the growing specialty & craft universe in the US, while building expertise through educational and industry resources across several categories.  Gemini Spirits & Wine, a subsidiary of Sazerac, serves as the home for the majority of these brands today and the new division will operate in conjunction with Gemini.  

Ken Kwarta, General Manager of Gemini Spirits & Wine, comments “Since its inception, Gemini has partnered with some of the greatest spirits producers in the world.  As we continue to grow and add new business, we are committed to developing the appropriate resources in the US marketplace to meet the growing demands of our customers and consumers.” 

Over the next several months, the full launch of Bond & Royal will include a team of focused sales specialists, new brands and import partners coming on board, as well as marketing, PR, industry relations and educational programs.  The company’s focus will immediately be around the award-winning specialty and craft brands from the Gemini portfolio including Del Maguey Single Village Mezcal, Banks Rum, Siete Leguas Tequila, Campo de Encanto Pisco, Dimmi Liquore di Milano, Glenfarclas Single Malt Scotch and the Casa San Matias Tequilas.  Additional brands will be vetted and added to the portfolio as fitting with the company’s strategy. 

Megan Hurtuk, head of marketing for Bond & Royal, notes “Our partners are true masters of their crafts, whose passion and experience- not to mention phenomenal products- inspire us daily.  Our vision for B&R is to further spread the story of these high integrity spirits and develop additional brands, while fueling the energy, knowledge and overall conversation amongst the core of this burgeoning scene.”
