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

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

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
