Beneagles Scotch Whisky in Grizzly Bear 50ml decanter modelled in 1981 by Wade Ceramics for Peter Thompson Ltd.

Best known for this Beneagles brand of ceramic decanters, Peter Thomson was established on Perth High Street in 1908. Peter was a skilled blender, and in addition to the company’s wine and spirits wholesale business, created a number of bespoke blends using in particular his knowledge of the Speyside malts. 

In the late 1970s Beneagles was one of the top 12 whisky brands in Scotland, they were sold to British Caledonian’s first class passengers.

Peter Thomson remained family-run until 1983 when it was acquired by Reo Stakis. Two years later the company was sold on again to Leith-based Charles Mackinlay & Co, the sister company of Waverley Vintners Limited that was owned by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries plc. Later that year Mackinlay was acquired by Invergordon Distillers. In 1993 Invergordon became part of Whyte & Mackay where the Beneagles brand name now lies dormant.

Wade Ceramics was founded in 1810 and specialises in porcelain and earthenware, featuring a unique style is well-known and well-loved. Its products include animal figures and industrial ceramics. In the 1950s, the Wade potteries created 'Whimsies', small solid porcelain animal figures first developed by Sir George Wade, which became popular and collectable in Britain and America, following their retail launch in 1954, and were widely available in shops throughout the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
