Buchanans Finest Blended Scotch Whisky History;
James Buchanan was born in Canada in 1849; the following year his parents returned to Scotland.
However after a short period in Scotland the young James was raised in Northern Ireland.
At the age of fifteen James Buchanan joined a Glasgow shipping firm, as an office boy, then went on to gain 10 years experience in his brothers grain business.
In 1879 he became a London agent for Charles Mackinlay & Co, the Leith whisky blenders.
After 5 years he had set up his own London business. His first customer was Dolamore Ltd a respected wine and cigar merchants. Initially trading in casks of whisky he was quick to see the potential for a quality blended, bottled whisky.
