Black Bottle, creation of Gordon Graham & Co. debuted in the late 19th Century. Its original formula featured single malts from Islay and Highland distilleries.
In 1951 the company office burnt to the ground and all documents were lost. Soon the brand was purchased by Long John International and returned under new formula, which didn’t find customers’ appreciation. Allied Domecq acquired the brand in 1990 and restored its quality and reputation but just five years later sold it to Highland Distillers. Black Bottle 10 years old was introduced in 1998 and marketed as ‘Finest Scotch Whisky with a Heart of Islay’. Since 2003 the brand has been owned by Burn Stewart Distillers, who phased out 10 years old expression in 2006 and again altered the brand formula.
