- - About the brand -
- Two centuries, five Master Blenders and one uncompromising standard of excellence. That's the Ballantine's story, and we're sticking to it. We can trace our roots all the way back to 1827 when our founder George Ballantine first opened his store in Edinburgh. Since then, we've travelled the globe and are now the No.1 blended Scotch whisky in Europe and No.2 around the world.
- - What is whisky? -
- Whisky is a spirit distilled from fermented grains which are then aged in wooden casks. There are different types of Whisky, however the most well-known are Blended Whiskey, Single Malt Whisky, Irish Whiskey & Bourbon. In general, whiskies can be characterised by a variety of flavours: from Sweet to Fruity, Floral to Spicy all the way to Smoky (Peaty) tasting notes.
- Blended whiskies have been expertly crafted using different styles of whiskey to deliver a complex, consistent taste characterised by floral and fruity notes. If you are looking for a smooth whisky with a simpler profile to start with, try a single malt to discover its typically fruity or smoky flavours, or an Irish whiskey that tends to carry predominantly fruity notes. For those that favour strong, dominant flavours, why not try a Bourbon for a traditionally sweet experience or spice it up with a Rye whiskey.
- Whisky can be drunk neat, with a dash of water or with ice “on the rocks”. Many enjoy it as a longer drink over ice with ginger ale, soda, cola or lemonade. It's great as a cocktail too! Why not try it in a Whisky Sour or an Irish Coffee?
- - Whisky or Whiskey? -
- Whisky comes from Scotland while whiskey, with an extra 'e', is traditionally made in Ireland. This difference in the spelling originates in the translations of the word from the Scottish and Irish Gaelic forms. Whiskey is also used when referring to American whiskies, whilst in Japan they use the Scottish spelling. The spelling can therefore reveal a little more about the whisk(e)y's heritage!
