John Dewar and Sons of Perth produce blended Scotch whisky.
1846 The company was founded by John Dewar, Sr, (J. H. Dewar).
Under the guidance and leadership of his two sons, John A. Dewar Jr. and Tommy Dewar, the brand expanded on a global scale. Tommy Dewar, gifted with charisma and charm, was a large asset to the success of the brand.
