Bell’s

Brief History of Bell’s Whisky


Arthur Bell began blending single malts together in 1851 in order to create a more consistent blended whisky. By at least 1863, Arthur Bell was the first known whisky manufacturer to appoint a London agent. 


In 1895, Bell's two sons became partners in the company. Arthur Kinmond was designated to manage the domestic market, while Robert was appointed to monitor the brand's international expansion.


By the 1880s, the company had narrowed its focus to blended whiskies. Arthur Bell passed away in the year 1900. After Robert retired to live as a country gentleman in 1921, the partnership became a private company run by Arthur Kinmond.


Due to a surge in demand following the repeal of Prohibition in America, Arthur Bell & Sons purchased two distilleries in 1933: Blair Athol and Dufftown. The Inchgower distillery was also purchased in 1936.


After the death of the Bell brothers in 1942, the company's accountant, William Govan Farquharson, was named chairman.


He concentrated his efforts on increasing the brand's visibility. In 1949, Bell's became a publicly traded company. Arthur Bell exported to 130 different countries in 1954. Bell's was the best-selling whisky in Scotland by 1970.


Bell's could not afford the advertising budgets of the larger whisky distilleries in the early 1970s. Rather, it concentrated on the use of mixers in conjunction with its product. The product's popularity among women grew as a result, and Bell's revenues increased by 800 percent between 1970 and 1979.


Bell's became the best-selling whisky in the United Kingdom in 1978. Raymond Miquel, the company's managing director at the time, deserves a lot of credit for this expansion. By 1980, the firm had a 35 percent market share in the United Kingdom. 


Gleneagles Hotels was purchased by Arthur Bell & Sons in 1984. Guinness bought the company for $518 million in 1985, and it was later absorbed into Diageo.



Why is Bell’s Whisky a great choice?


Bell's Whisky is a blend of grain and malt whiskies made in Blair Athol. The whisky is blended and then bottled at Diageo's Shieldhall facility at a 40% ABV. A small bottle can be purchased for less than ten pounds. The color of this whisky is tawny, russet apple. 


On the nose, Millionaire shortbread, fudge, and crème fraîche It comes and goes quickly, but it's enjoyable. Once you've grown accustomed to those scents, they tend to fade quickly but this is not a problem.


Despite the viscosity, there are a few whiffs of what was on the nose, but there isn't much taste traction on the tongue at first. Dried apricots, caramel, apple peel, cashew nuts, and a faint creamy fudge with evaporated milk finish. 


There's a lot of grain action here. It's well-balanced and has a nice oily texture. Woody notes and a small bit of smoke, but only a tiny bit, lead to a pleasant, warming finish. 


Overall, Bell's Whisky is a pleasant and mellow dram. It isn't just inoffensive. You get more than you pay for, and it's unquestionably superior to other whisky, which costs roughly four times as much.



Time to chug it up, Bell’s Whisky is crafted with perfection, taste the excitement and experience class with every drop. Escape the boredom and get all you want. Add it to the cart and buy it online now!
