Whisky name makes return

John Crabbie’s David Brown

THE John Crabbie whisky name has returned to the market for the first time since the 1970s with two limited edition single malts.

Crabbie 8 year old, a Highland single malt, and Crabbie 30 year old, made in Speyside, were launched last week at a Burns Supper in Edinburgh attended by industry experts including Charles MacLean.

David Brown, John Crabbie & Co’s MD, said: “For many years John Crabbie led the industry with his 8 year old blend.  We thought it fitting that the first release of this era should be a limited edition 8 year old brought up to date as a single malt.”
