Description

The Greenless brothers of London, James and Samuel took inspiration for their blended scotch whisky from Old Thomas Parr, who was said to be Britain’s oldest man when he died in 1635 age 152, where he’s now buried at Westminster Abbey. The longevity signifies the maturity of a good whisky.

The brothers established Greenlees as a whisky blender and merchant in 1871. After 1909, the Old Parr brand was created. It quickly became popular in London but eventually, it grew more successful as an export. The Old Parr brand was eventually passed on to DCL’s successor, Diageo, and remains part of the British company’s ‘Local Stars’ portfolio.

The 18-year-old Old Parr Superior was launched in 1989, while Old Parr Elizabethan and Tribute extensions were dropped. The latter was re-released for the Colombian market in 2014. The Columbians love the brand so much that they wrote songs about Old Parr.

Old Par Superior 18 Years is blended in small quantities in Scotland only twice a year. The brand sold over 1 million cases (1 case equals 9 litres) in 2011, putting it among the top twenty highest selling Scotch whisky brands in the world. The brand's highest sales are in the export markets of Japan and South America.

The Cragganmore and Glendullan are major components of the Grand Old Parr blend since World War II. It is the blend of the finest scotch whiskies matured in Seasoned Oak casks. Bottled at 43% ABV.
