A famous and very popular blended whisky, Vat 69 Whisky comes with a great deal of history. It was first made in 1882 by William Sanderson – a liquor manufacturer from Leith, Scotland. To create the perfect blend, he made up 100 different vattings of whisky. Hired a panel of expert whisky tasters to select the finest one. They chose the 69th vatting, thus the name, Vat 69. Blended using 40 different malt and grain whiskies. This is a smooth, balanced spirit and a perennial favourite with blend drinkers.
