Teacher's has been around a long time and still presents as an excellent product for the price. Sure, you can pay more for other Scotch - but generally why WOULD you?

Teacher’s can trace its roots back to the 1850s, when a Victorian grocer named William Teacher began selling whisky in Glasgow, Scotland. As an immensely
successful brand, the company hedged its sales during the First World War by distributing to its customers ration coupons, which entitled them to only five glasses of Teacher’s per week. When the war was over, business resumed, and the company was able to fulfill growing demand from its ample supply. Teacher's worldwide sales reach over 1.5 million cases and it is available in over 100 countries. It is now a brand leader in many countries including Brazil and India.
Whilst all Blended Scotch Whiskies are made with both the malt and grain whiskies, Teacher's Highland Cream is unique. The blend has exceptionally high malt content - no less than 45%. This gives it a richer, more bodied flavour. A complex blend: Teacher's uses over 30 different single malt whiskies. It is our Master Blender's skill that ensures that these malts are balanced and harmonized delivering the same full rich taste that W M Teacher created over 175 years ago.
