Product Description

John Barr blended scotch has an interesting history in that it was created in 1977 to fill the gap left by Johnnie Walker Red from the United Kingdom due to a dispute with the European commission over pricing and taxes (see the full legal document here--not very exciting reading). Eventually the John Barr brand was acquired by Whyte & Mackay, who expanded it to a global market. The brand is owned by Whyte & Mackay, who in turn is owned by United Spirits, which itself was acquired by Diageo in July, 2013 but as part of that deal the Whyte and Mackay line was sold to Philippines-based Emperador Distillers as part of the fair trade agreement.
