Some enjoy them neat, others prefer mixing it up - we say it doesn't matter how you drink them, but we think they taste better with friends.


A master distiller from Italy, Giacamo Justerini (the 'J' in J&B), falls head over heels for an Opera singer, Margherita Bellini, and follows her to England. His love is unrequited, but Margherita introduces him to Samuel Johnson who will in turn introduce him to his future business partner, his nephew, George Johnson. Two generations of Johnsons later we meet the other initial in J&B - Alfred Brooks. Brooks buys the company from Johnson and renames it Justerini & Brooks. Brooks hears of Andrew Usher, an Edinburgh Spirit merchant, who likes to experiment and was the first person to commercially blend whisky. Justerini & Brooks task Usher with creating a smoother blend for a new audience, so he brings his business partner into the mix - James Anderson. Together they develop the J&B Club blend, one of the earliest Scotch house blends, and they acquire the business together. Enter Eddie Tatham, a family friend of Anderson's. Eddie is hugely charismatic and soon becomes director of the company. In 1929, the creation of J&B Rare was put in jeopardy when Eddie, after taking orders from wealthy clients in Prohibition-era America, was arrested at Grand Central Station carrying a briefcase full of samples. Eddie is bailed out and meets Charlie Julian, a blender known for his great nose, refined palate and his instinctive knowledge of consumer demands. They begin the blending process for J&B Rare - just in time for Prohibition to come to an end. We're now celebrating over 250 years of J&B, a history filled with dynamic individuals and a heritage built on chance encounters. A story that shows the good that happens when people come together. A brand that's made for people who like to mix things up.

Inspired by an Italian, created in London and distilled in Scotland, J&B Rare is unlike any other Scotch whisky. It brings together 42 single malt and grain whiskies and carefully blends them to create a subtle, smooth and complex flavour. It’s this delicate balance that gives J&B Rare its distinctive character – if we took even one whisky away, you would taste the difference.At the heart of J&B Rare are malt whiskies from Speyside, a region recognised as the superior area in Scotland for making single malt whisky. They provide the fruity, fresh quality you can taste, and also give J&B its light colour. Added to that are some of the finest grain whiskies Scotland has to offer. They help reveal the individual flavours of the various malts, unveiling the smooth character of J&B Rare.Great in a cocktail, the unique blend makes it perfect for mixing – so by all means go overboard on the mixers, but please don’t go overboard on the J&B.
