The Dewar’s 18-year-old whisky has been double aged in oak casks, which the brand owner said results in a creamy, well-rounded blend.

Bacardi has supported the release with in-store messaging urging customers to ‘Celebrate with the most celebrated’, a reference to the multiple awards won by Dewar’s.
