About Black Dog: The blend was created in 1883 by James Mackinlay for his son-in-law Walter Millard, who had traveled all the way from India to Scotland in search of an impeccable whisky. Walter Milliard named this whisky in honour of his favourite fishing fly, Black Dog. One of the finest scotch brands available in the market today, the masterful Scotch whisky is available in two enchanting blends, 8 year old Centenary Scotch Whisky and 12 year old Deluxe Scotch Whisky. Black Dog 8 YO and Stephen Kabakos will make the evening memorable with the soul stirring music from the legend of rock and roll music.
