Bells Blended Scotch Whisky - A to Z of Whiskies

Bells Blended Scotch Whisky

Bells blended whisky was first produced in 1825 by Arthur Bell & Sons of Perth. Today Bell's Extra Special Blended Scotch Whisky is the most popular blended whisky in the UK. In fact it has been said that Bells is several fine whiskies blended together to please the palates of a greater number of people than one whisky unmixed.

The Bells blend comprises of more than 35% malt, including quality malts such as Linkwood and Caol Ila. It is made with up to 40 of the finest malt and grain whiskies which are matured in oak casks before being skilfully blended to give Bells its unmistakable rich nose, warm taste and lingering finish.

The now famous Bells decanters are collectable. They were first produced in the 1930s and since 1988 a decanter has been produced each Christmas. The most collectable is the Charles and Diana decanter commemorating their marriage in 1981, which are now valued at up to 400.
