Royal Household scotch - a bit of background info....
Some background info on Royal Household courtesy of Diageo:
This brand came about because James Buchanan was selected to supply Scotch whisky to the Royal Household in the 1890s, and he created a special blend especially for the Royal orders he was receiving. The name ‘The Royal Household’ blend was first officially used in 1900 and in 1901, 100 cases were delivered aboard the SS Ophir, in which the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George V and Queen Mary) sailed on their voyage around the world.
The Royal Household brand is now **** as a premium Scotch whisky in Japan. Buchanan’s has a long history in Japan, as James Buchanan became the Scotch whisky supplier to the Emperor of Japan in 1907.
