Royal Lochnagar 12-Year-Old 150th Anniversary
Royal Lochnagar is so-called after it was bestowed with a Royal Warrant by Prince Albert and Queen Victoria following a visit in 1848. The popularity of the distillery’s Begg’s blend saw it acquired by John Dewar & Sons in 1916, who later became part of DCL, upping the demand for its whisky from other brands in their portfolio, including Johnnie Walker. Today it is part of Diageo, their smallest distillery by some margin, making the modest amount of its single malt spared for bottling increasingly sought after.
This special bottling of the core range 12-year-old was produced in 1995 to commemorate the visit of HRH The Prince of Wales on the occasion of the distillery's 150th anniversary.
This is bottle 95 of 150 bottles made.
