Old Perth Scotch Whiskey like everything in life has a history, as whiskey experts know, it all starts with the old malts blended in the city of Perth.
The Scottish city of Perth was once known worldwide as the mixing capital of the world.
However, as whiskey bottlers have moved over the past century in search of less rural settings, the city of Perth has slowly become the forgotten city of whiskey.
Old Perth was a lost blended whiskey that was originally created by the proud Perthshire family, The Thomsons.
It was the family blender, Peter Thomson, who originally produced the mix. In Peter’s honor, not only is every case of Old Perth named after his family.
Old Perth “The Original” is also named to reflect the whiskey Peter created all those years ago.
Peter Thomson began his career in the grocery, wine and spirits business in Perth, Scotland, in 1908.
Soon after, he established his own whiskey blends.
One of these was Old Perth, which quickly became popular in Scottish pubs, being the favorite brand in the country.

In the 1960s, Old Perth whiskey was held in high regard by those in the know due to its high malt content and inclusion of one of the most prestigious sherry single malt whiskeys in the world.
It was considered one of the best blended whiskeys in existence.
Nearly half a century later, one of Scotland’s oldest whiskey families, Morrison (formerly Morrison Bowmore Distillers) bought Old Perth and they have revived the legacy for all to enjoy, for the first time in this distillery’s history comes the brand to Spain, choosing Qantima Group, as exclusive importer.
