The company, formerly called Johnson & Justerini, was founded in 1749 in the City of London delivering exceptional wine and Alcohol to different aristocratic households, as well as supplying King George III. In 1831, Johnson & Justerini was bought by Alfred Brooks and renamed Justerini & Brooks.
J&B Scotch Whisky History
In 1749, Giacomo Justerini of Bologna fell in love with an opera singer and accompanied her to London, bringing with him some recipes for Alcohol produced by his uncle, who was a distiller. He obtained an English partner, George Johnson, and collectively they set up as wine merchants. In 1760, Justerini returned to his native land after auctioning the business to Johnson. That same year, King George III praised the firm with the first of its eight Royal Warrants.
In 1831, the company was bought by Alfred Brooks, a nobleman of means - it was announced that his St John's Wood gardens were adequately large enough to include a snipe shoot. The firm converted Justerini & Brooks, and its headquarters were, built in Regent's Park. Charles Dickens was an early customer.
Seeing the potential of blended Scotch Whisky, J&B was one of the first London Alcohol merchants to buy up stocks of sophisticated malt whisky and create its "house" blend. The Whisky was called Club (and is still available from J&B's shops in St. James's Street, London and Alva Street, Edinburgh). Throughout Prohibition, the business was promoting a brand they had designed specifically for the American market, J&B Rare, and when the Prohibition came to an end in 1933, their movements began to pay interests in and around New York City.
In the early 1950s, J&B joined with another group to form United Wine Traders. In 1962, UWT united with gin producer W&A Gilbey to form International Distillers & Vintners. In 1963 the bottling of J&B was carried out at the Strathleven Bonded Depot plant in Dumbarton, presented by Edward Heath, helping J&B obtain six Queen awards for export.
IDV became part of Grand Metropolitan in 1972, that joined with Guinness to become Diageo. Bottling J&B Scotch Whisky was, moved in 2000. Today J&B Rare Whisky is the second best selling blended Scotch whisky in the world, after the Johnnie Walker Whisky Brand.
