Hibiki Japanese Harmony is made with malt whiskies from the Yamazaki and Hakushu distilleries, as well as grain whisky from the Chita distillery. The whiskies are drawn from 5 different types of cask, including American white oak casks, Sherry casks and Mizunara oak casks. The blend itself was crafted by the Suntory Whisky blending team, led by Master Blender Shingo Torii. An elegant expression, with wafts of honey, orange, a herbaceous touch or two and light oak.
Smooth and perfectly balanced. Scotland’s favourite whisky blend of the finest malts and exceptional grain whiskies.
DEWAR’S ‘Double Double’ 21 Year Old has pioneered the ‘double ageing’ process, with all the blends in the range undergoing a secondary resting in oak casks to marry the flavours and bring extra smoothness to the blend.
With the limited edition new ‘Double Double’ range, this process has become an art form, with a ‘quadruple aging’ or ‘double double’ aging process created by Dewar’s master blender Stephanie Macleod.
Innovation comes in many forms, and in 2019 our Master Blender, Stephanie Macleod, released a new range of Blended Scotch Whiskies with a Four Stage Ageing Process for Ultimate Smoothness. This may sound like an indulgence but the series has been picking up gold medal awards the world over since being released.
Firstly, the malt whiskies achieve their required age, and are mixed together and returned to an oak cask. The same happens to the grain whiskies. Then the two whisky types are blended together, and returned to an oak cask for a secondary double aging period. Finally, the blend is finished in an ex-Sherry cask.
This 21-year-old release has been finished in Oloroso Sherry casks, giving the whisky “subtle notes of cinnamon and ripe vine fruits with a silky smooth finish”.
We believe that in order to do things right and get the best results you should put in double the effort. So we asked ourselves how we could put in double the effort to our range that was already Double Aged for Extra Smoothness…and it was obvious..double it!
Our Double Double Series has been aged, blended together, aged again, then finished in sherry casks for the Ultimate Smoothness.
The world’s first Scotch whisky selectively finished in Japanese Mizunara oak casks. Chivas Mizunara is a perfect marriage of Scottish craft and Japanese tradition.

The Glenrothes is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky. It is made at the Glenrothes distillery located in the town of Rothes in the heart of the Speyside region of Scotland. The distillery sits beside the Burn of Rothes, hidden in a glen on the edge of the town. The Glenrothes distillery is located on the banks of the peaty burn of Rothes. The distillery uses water from the Ardcanny Spring, which the locals call “The Lady’s Well”. Glenrothes first opened in 1879 and was then extended in 1896. Unfortunately in 1922 there was a large fire in the distillery and lots of casks exploded which caused huge quantities of whisky to drain into a local burn. It was then underwent a complete modernization in 1980 and now produces around 1.6 million litres a year.
Every bottle of Glenrothes has the year of bottling and date of distillation. Glenrothes have a very unique bottling that resembles the style of sample bottles found in blending rooms. Most of the whisky produced at Glenrothes is used for the Cutty Sark Scots blend.
