Perth, Scotland used to be gateway to the Highlands. In fact, it used to be the capital of Scotland at one point in history. It was a wee rebellion that made the then King change the capital.
Regardless the history, Perth was home to some of the biggest names in Scotch whisky, including Matthew Gloag, Arthur Bell, John Dewar and Peter Thomson.
This malt takes its name from a blend that was originally produced by Perth-based blender Peter Thomson. Old Perth has since been revitalised under the current stewardship of independent blender and bottler Morrison Scotch Whisky Distillers.
