Teacher’s is one of the oldest Scottish brands of blended whisky; the iconic Teacher’s Highland Cream was introduced in 1884, few years after William Teacher’s, the company founder, death and was an immediate success.
About 100 years later the brand sales in the UK exceeded one million cases making it the second best selling blend in the country with 16% market share. Teacher’s 25 years old has been released in small batches since 2012. This super premium blend contains over 60% of malt whisky with Ardmore as its backbone. It is bottled at 46% abv and presented in elegant black flask.
