White Horse Blended Scotch Whisky
The founder of White Horse Peter Mackie was by all accounts a real character described as a megalomaniac, eccentric and genius. They do say there isn’t much of leap between genius and madness. The earliest date recorded mentioning the White Horse Blend is 1890 and its major claim to fame is that it was the first whisky to dump the cork and change to screw cap an innovation Peter Mackie would have proud of if he had lived to see that day. The name White Horse comes from a coach inn (bar) in Edinburgh called ‘The White Horse Cellar Inn’ which was popular with the great and the good in the 18th century.
The popularity of White Horse lies in one of its major ingredients Lagavulin which provides it’s high quality peated whisky for White Horse blends. The Islay distillery gives White Horse the subtle smokiness while no less than another 40 malt whiskies from the Lowlands, Highlands and Islay are mixed to make White Horse blended whisky. Today White Horse is enjoyed in over 200 countries and holds the Royal Warrant after supplying to the Royal household.
