Doble V Selected Whisky - Hiram Walker

Postby Robster » Thu Mar 01, 2007 7:00 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a whisky called Doble V. It's made by Hiram Walker but it's not Canadian, apperently, it is/was? made in Spain.

The reason im looking for this whisky in particular is because it has the same name as the company I'm working for, I stumbled on a picture of it during a google search, my boss got a kick out of it and asked me to find some bottles. I made a special order request from the BC Liquor Branch, but they couldn't find a supplier.

We did however buy a mini bottle of it from eBay, that was kind of fun, but he really wants a decent sized bottle.

I'm looking for any info that you guys can give me on this product.
- Is it still in production?
- Is there any way I can buy some?
I've tried Google-ing it but there is very little info on it, then I found this forum and you guys all seem very smart so hopefully you can help me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Hiram Walker a subsidary of late Allied Domecq made the Doble V in Spain where they had a distillery at Cuenca till 1991. Via Allied there is/was ownership of Destilerias y Crianza where the made the DYC blend using Lochside malt distilled in Scotland.
That is all in the past now. The Doble V was successful in Spain and South America. If the new owner Pernod Ricard which devoured Allied Domecq two years ago still make it I can not say.
If you look for it try to contact someone at Pernod Ricard I would suggest.

What I read here would suggest that whisky is no longer made by Hiram Walker as in the lowest paragraph of this news there is no whisky mentioned under that company.

Good luck.

Thanks for replying so quickly guys!

kallaskander: I've sent an email to Pernod Ricard regarding the product.

Scottie: If you could take a look while you're there that would be great, and if you manage to find a bottle or two and it's reasonably priced, I would reimburse you for them and throw in a little something for your troubles. :wink:
