Whyte and Mackay can trace its roots back to 1844 in Glasgow. And if time has taught us anything, itâs how to perfect our consistently smooth and rich tasting whisky. Thatâs partly thanks to our triple maturation process and partly down to the abiding genius of our third generation master blender and those who came before him. The secret behind the award-winning taste of Whyte & Mackay is our triple maturation process and the way we blend to make sure no single whisky dominates another, creating a harmony of flavors that work together to produce our famous smoother, richer taste.
The story begins with choosing the finest aged single malts and aged grain whiskies from two of Scotland's most famous distilling regions, Highland and Speyside. Then we carefully age the malt whisky whilst separately aging the grain whisky. Most blended whiskies stop at this stage but Whyte and Mackay add an additional step. The final chapter of the maturation story sees the marrying of these two different whiskies in sherry casks. This triple maturation process produces a whisky rich in color with golden highlights, round and full on the nose with smooth, rich flavors of honey and fruits. As in life, we believe the more dedication and effort we put in, the more you will be rewarded.
