The History

In 1958 a rare blend of Scotch Malt and Grain Whiskies was discovered in 10 oak casks in The Port of Leith, Edinburgh in a warehouse owned by William Muir (Bond 9) Limited (Founded in 1823).

After some research it was discovered that the blend had been originally distilled in 1954 and that the blend recipe, created by Marshall Taplow (Established in London in 1760), dated back to the 1800s.

In 1966 a small quantity of the blend, which was now 12 Years Old, was bottled for the private use of the Directors of William Muir (Bond 9) Limited and a number of their friends.

A total of six individuals were instrumental in forming what became known as Syndicate 58/6 – hence the name.
