Berry Brothers & Rudd Whisky Independent Bottler

Berry Brothers & Rudd Independent Bottler

Berry Bros. & Rudd is Britain's oldest wine and spirit merchant, having traded from the same shop for over 300 years.

The business was established in 1698 by the Widow Bourne at 3 St James's Street, London. Today members of the Berry and Rudd families continue to own and manage the family-run wine and spirit merchant.

Berrys first supplied wine to the British Royal Family during King George III's reign and has continued to do so until the present day. Today, Berrys holds two Royal Warrants for H.M. The Queen and H.R.H. The Prince of Wales.

In 1923 the company created Cutty Sark Scots' Whisky; this was the first naturally-coloured Scotch. More recently a range of fine vintage Single Malts has been developed under the Berrys' Own Selection label.

Berrys' Own Selection Scotch Whisky comprises of an extensive range of own-label bottlings of fine and rare vintage Single Malt whiskies including several bottlings at cask strength. Every cask has been selected by BB&R's own expert tasters and only exceptional whiskies deemed fit for inclusion make it into this range. All, almost without exception, are exclusive to Berrys; It's something for those 'in the know'!

Berry Bros. & Rudd has supplied fine spirits through their Berrys' Own Selection for well over a century, making Berrys one of the earliest Independent bottlers. By 1909, they were offering 1897 Macallan and 1885 Talisker by the gallon or dozen; to name a few.

Berrys' range of whiskies includes a number of different ranges. The Selected by Berrys' After Dinner Range, The Blue Hanger blended malt, the Craoi na Móna Single Irish Malt Whisky and the special edition John Milroy Selection of Scotch Whiskies.

In April 2010, BB&R concluded a deal to sell the Cutty Sark blended Scotch whisky brand to The Edrington Group.

Under the deal, BB&R acquired The Glenrothes single malt brand from Edrington, which has signed long-term supply agreements to provide whisky fillings and stocks to BB&R. Edrington will retain ownership of The Glenrothes distillery.
