Product Description

Bailie Nicol Jarvie (colloquially BNJ) is a brand of whisky which was blended by The Glenmorangie Company in Scotland and has now been discontinued. It was named after a character in Walter Scott’s novel Rob Roy. It is a blended Scotch whisky, which had a good following in Scotland, but was and is relatively unknown in other parts of the world. The Bailie Nicol Jarvie was first blended by Nicol Anderson & Co, a Glasgow-based whisky company that was acquired by the whisky company Macdonald & Muir of Leith in 1921. The whisky was named after a character in Sir Walter Scott’s renowned novel Rob Roy – a bailie (magistrate) who tackled a sword-wielding Highland clansman in an inn at Clachan of Aberfoyle, setting fire to his kilt with a red-hot poker. The blend was particularly popular in the early 20th century.The brand was relaunched in 1994 by Glenmorangie plc (as Macdonald & Muir had been renamed). The composition of the blend was changed from the original recipe due to market forces. It contains 60% single malts from the Highlands, Islay and Speyside blended together with 40% grain whisky from Ayrshire. It was recently discontinued by Glenmorangie citing high demand for their single malt, all of which is now used for their own single malt whiskies. The BNJ has since made a quiet exit from the market….. but PretZels still has it…… last chance…… now or never again……
