Whyte & Mackays :

From the whiskypilot
Dating all the way back to 1844 the company was founded as Allan and Poynter. However, in 1882 did James Whyte, who had been managing the company, form a partnership with Charles Mackay and the company shifted name to Whyte and Mackay.
The company was built on a blend called Special, a blend of 35 different maltwhiskies and a number of grain whiskies. After WWII the company spent four years building up a store of whisky and in 1960 they merged with the Dalmore distillery. In 1972 they bought the Fettercairn and Tomintoul-Glenlivet distilleries and continued to expand. The company today is owned by Guiness Plc.

Whyte & Mackay is a Scottish company that produces, among other drinks, the Whyte & Mackay blended whisky range. Founded by Charles Mackay and James Whyte in 1844 and based around Glasgow, they began combining over 35 different malts to create the ‘Special’ branded blend whisky, which was a success, surprisingly so due to the fact that at the time Scotland was more concerned with the drinking of cognac.

Whyte & Mackay employs a ‘double marriage’ blending method: first the single malts are ‘married’ together and left in cask for several months, and then the grain whiskies are added before the blend is placed in other sherry butts for final maturation.
