Ballantine’s blended Scotch whisky is Europe’s No. 1 Scotch whisky
It was first created in 1827 by George Ballantine, a Scottish entrepreneur who followed his own way in life and who was driven to produce the ultimate blended whisky of the utmost quality.
In 1884, Ballantine boasted 20,000 gallons of blended stock in bond, so he began to allow malts to age. Over the years a more discerning flavour was created - one that would make an outstanding mixer. Ballantine’s Finest was born.
The brand remains true to Ballantine’s self determination and his commitment to quality, and is one of the most extensive and innovative ranges in blended Scotch whisky today.
The range includes: Ballantine’s Finest, Ballantine’s 12 Year Old, lime-infused spirit drink Ballantine’s Brasil, and the smooth, smoky and spicy blend Ballantine’s Hard Fired. It is completed by a highly-acclaimed prestige range including Ballantine’s 17, 21, 30 and 40 Year Olds.
Ballantine’s blended Scotch whiskies are enjoyed in over 100 countries around the world.
George Ballantine, our founder, used to tell his sons – “get the blend right and you’ve got everything right.”
We’ve stayed true to this ever since.
