King of The Scots blended whisky er produceret af Douglas Laing.

Douglas Laing's King of Scots Blended Scotch Whisky was first created in 1886. Over a century later, only the closest members of our family-owned company know the particulars of its recipe. Celebrating the blend's distinguished heritage, superior quality and provenance, each bottle proudly bears Scotland's Lion Rampant, used by the Kings of Scotland for hundreds of years. Fred Laing, the second generation of the family business and the company's Master Blender, hand selects casks for King of Scots and marries them together to create this, the crowning glory of Blended Scotch Whisky.
