The first record of Scotch whisky was in 1494, where it was referred to as the “water of life.” Needless to say, it caught on quickly. By 1780 there were a whopping eight legal Scotch distilleries and a handful (400) of illegal competitors.
In 1786, a group of Scottish merchants absconded with two of European high society’s most treasured pleasures, golf and scotch, and brought them together at Harleston Green in Charleston, South Carolina for all people to enjoy. We’d nominate those merchants for sainthood if it didn’t risk getting in the way of their drinking and carousing.
Harleston Green blended scotch celebrates the unwavering power of conviviality, openness, and firm handshakes. We trust it will soon become the indispensable foundation for balanced cocktails, long nights, new games and spirited conversation among friends—and worlds—new and old.
