This is an English Wine merchant who bottled under their own name, B.O.B., Buyers Owen Brand, in addition to the brands they sold under the name of the producer.

Hedges & Butler was established in London in 1667 by Edmund Harris as a wine and spirits merchant. In 1821 the company supplied wine and Port for the Coronation banquet of King George IV, who granted Hedges & Butler a Royal Warrant in 1830, and Queen Victoria followed suit in 1837. Although specialising in wine, Hedges & Butler began to produce its own blended Scotch whiskies before the Second World War, and it is nowadays mostly known for it’s whiskies. In the 1960s the company was acquired by The Bass Charrington Group, and since 1998 the brand name has been owned by Ian Macleod Distillers.

Hedges-Butler Vintages:1922, 1927, 1960, 1963
