About Chapter 7 Williamson 9 Year Old Blended Malt Whisky

Williamson is a tea-spooned malt. But what is tea-spooning? Sometimes distilleries don't want their brand names an independent bottler's label. So, they add a teaspoon of malt whisky from another distillery and make the whisky a 'blend'. That way, the independent bottler can't use their trademark. In the whisky trade, tea-spooned malts have distinct names like 'Williamson'. People know where the whisky is from, they can't put the name on the bottle.

In unrelated news, this article about how Laphroaig named a whisky after Bessie WILLIAMSON. She's a Laphroaig icon!

We’d always wanted to bottle a Williamson cask, and we’re thrilled with this one. This is a powerful whisky that reflects the unedited character of Laphroaig distillery.
