Whyte and Mackay 50 Year Old 50cl/ 175th Anniversary

Released at the end of 2019 to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Whyte and Mackay whisky company.

James Whyte and Charles Mackay started their company in 1882, quickly launching their Whyte & Mackay special blend. Their sales were predominantly in the export market until after the second world war, when they renewed their focus domestically. The firm merged with the Mackenzie Brothers in 1960, giving them their first distillery, Dalmore. They soon added Tamnavulin, Fettercairn and the Invergordon grain distillery to their portfolio, all of which have been key contributors to their blends over the years. Whyte & Mackay have always been forward thinking in their approach, using sherry finishing for their proprietary blend, and introducing the first 40 fl oz bottle for the on-trade in 1963 (now an industry standard). Today the brand is synonymous with its master blender, Richard Paterson, and remains one of the most popular Scotch brands in the world.

This 50 year old blend has been aged in a combination of different barrels. These include:

  • Bourbon cask
  • First fill sherry butt
  • Second fill sherry butt
  • Port Pipes
  • ex-30 year old Apostoles sherry butt.

The Glasgow-based blender gave away 1,500 bottles of this 50 Year Old blend as part of a promotional competition.

The bottle is presented in a smart black and gold box and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
