Stephanie Macleod Master Blender of the Year
At the 2019 International Whisky Competition, Stephanie assembled the highest scored blended whisky of this year’s competition for one of her newest Scotch whiskies, Dewar’s Double Double 32-Year-Old along with five other of Dewar’s Blended Scotch whisky expressions also receiving scores of over 90 Points. The awards highlight the commitment to premium Scotch whisky throughout the DEWAR’S portfolio of aged blends and reinforces DEWAR’S claim as the most awarded Blended Scotch whisky in the world.
In Dewar’s illustrious 170-year history, Stephanie MacLeod is only the seventh person to hold the proud title of Dewar’s Master Blender — and, the first woman.
She assumed the role of Master Blender in 2006, and has continued the Dewar’s blending legacy by maintaining the award winning taste of Dewar’s and other brands in the Scotch whisky portfolio. The portfolio has been expanded to include amongst others the award winning blends Dewar’s 15 and Dewar’s Legacy, a range of single cask expressions of Aberfeldy, and more recently the long awaited release of the ‘Last Great Malts’.
Recently we asked: for people looking to learn more about whisky, how would you recommend they start?
“I would start at a good whisky outlet and browse what’s on offer and ask questions of the staff, they’ll be delighted to answer your questions. Also, if you have the opportunity, attend a tasting, pairing dinner, or better yet, a trip to the distillery…but I’m biased on that of course.”
Luckily for our friends in New England, Stephanie is visiting Massachusetts!
Join us at Total Wines & More in Braintree and Danvers, Massachusetts for an intimate experience where Stephanie will lead you through tasting a flight of select Dewar’s expressions including some new innovations!
