Blackadder International is a distinguished independent bottler of single malt Scotch whisky, founded in 1995 by Robin Tucek and John Lamond. The company derives its name from the historical figure Bishop John Blackadder, a 17th-century Scottish preacher. Blackadder is renowned for its commitment to the idea that "the cask is king." They specialize in bottling cask strength whiskies primarily from single casks, refraining from chill-filtering or adding artificial coloring.

One of their standout series is the "Raw Cask" range, introduced in 2000, which features whisky bottled directly from the cask, often including cask deposits and sediment to preserve its authenticity. The absence of filtration endears these whiskies to enthusiasts.

Blackadder offers a diverse portfolio, including various series like "Limited Edition," "Old Man of Hoy," "Auld Edinburgh," and more. Their innovative "Black Snake" whiskies employ a Solera system for aging and blending.

With a presence in Japan, Taiwan, Israel, Europe, and the United States, Blackadder Whiskies have gained recognition for their unique and unadulterated flavors, adhering to the belief that the cask's influence is paramount in creating exceptional whisky.
