“Whisky is liquid gold” – George Bernard Shaw


True, good whisky is hard to come by and the finest whisky blends are like finding a treasure. It is no surprise, that Sir Walter Millard, an extensive traveller set out on his quest to find such a treasure, the perfect blended Scotch whisky in the late 1800s. During his quest in the misty shores of Scotland he finally found the perfect blend of Scotch Whisky by James Mackinlay, from the second generations of the Leith Scotch-whisky family. Black Dog was the name of Sir Walter Millard’s favourite fishing fly and the whisky was named after it.


James Mackinlay launched Black Dog in 1883. Black Dog whisky is distilled, matured and blended in Scotland, and every time-honored process has been followed in the same way for 130 years to produce the whisky blend with distinct flavours.


After 130 years Black Dog honors Sir Walter Millard and his search for a blend that is pure gold. In this spirit United Spirits has launched its latest triple matured Premium Scotch luxury whisky called the Black Dog Triple Gold Reserve, which honors a global lineage of a culture and brand that represents luxury, elegance and style while catering to the growing Indian consumers of Scotch whisky.


Renowned Master blender Richard Paterson with years of experience in blending Scotch whiskies has created this unique blend with complex flavours. This rare blend is made with grain whiskies and malt whiskies matured separately in American Bourbon casks, then blended together and matured again in Oloroso Sherry Butts making it a robust yet smooth and subtle whisky.


If you taste this whisky you will find a familiarity in its newness, freshness anchored in tradition. It is like taking a step forward with someone you love, the taste enhanced and made simply superior.
