Queen Anne was first released by Hill, Thomson & Co. in 1884, and registered in 1902. The blend was established and promoted by the firm’s export salesman, William Shaw, who had recently joined the company. Hill, Thomson & Co. was established in 1857, though its roots go back to William Hill’s licenced grocer’s shop which opened in 1793. It remained at 45 Frederick Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town for two centuries.

Queen Anne became its flagship blend alongside Something Special and was being sold in over 100 countries by the 1980s, principally in Sweden, Italy, Venezuela, Australasia and South America.

Meanwhile Hill, Thomson & Co. had become part of The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd in 1970, its Queen Anne blend taking a starring role in the portfolio. The group later became part of Canada’s Seagram and finally rested with French drinks giant Pernod Ricard in 2001.

Today Queen Anne continues to be registered to Hill, Thomson & Co., although its availability has somewhat diminished.
