The Black Dog History and Introducing Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve

Have you ever wondered how the famous Scotch whiskey Black Dog got it's name? Read on  to know about the interesting story..

Walter Millard, a Scot in British India, traveled to Scotland in 1883 in search of an impeccable whisky. His search ended in a blend created by James Mackinlay, of the second generation of the Leith Scotch Whisky blending family.

Being a keen angler himself, Walter Millard named the whisky Black Dog in honor of his favorite salmon fishing fly used in the Spey and Tay rivers of Scotland since the early 19th century. Thus was born Black Dog Whisky.

Today, more than a hundred years later, Black Dog Whisky remains faithful to the original blend.

The existing Black Dog range consists of :
Black Dog Gold Reserve 12 YO -
  • Largest selling BII Premium Scotch whisky in India with a 60% market share. 
  • Blend of fine whiskies from all the regions of Scotland – Speyside, Islay, Highlands and Lowlands

Black Dog Black Reserve -
  • A rich and rare blended Scotch whisky loaded with exceptional characters
  • Blend of 30 fine single malts and 5 grain whiskies

And the latest addition to the Black Dog Range is the Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve!
  • Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, as the name itself suggests, is the only blended Scotch that is produced involving a triple maturation process 
  • The triple maturation process which involves Grain whiskies and Malt whiskies separately matured in American Bourbon Casks and then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts for an extra longer period of time to give the blend a distinctive flavour and a delicate finish 
  • As per the consumer research conducted on the blend of TGR, it has been appreciated and accepted as a parallel to any 12 Y.O blended scotch
