Know-how

True to Scottish tradition, Ballantine’s Scotch whiskies were the first to be aged in oak casks. With elegant style and a balanced and smooth taste, the whiskies contain a complex blend of single malts and grain whiskies from the four renowned whisky regions of Scotland: Speyside, Highlands, Islay and the Lowlands.

The heritage of Ballantine's Scotch whisky can be traced back to 1827, when George Ballantine began supplying a selected range of Scotch whiskies to a distinguished clientele from a grocery store in Edinburgh.

By 1869, George had expanded his business to Glasgow with the help of his two sons. Now trading as “George Ballantine & Son”, his business started to export blended whisky to international markets and quickly became synonymous with high-quality, smooth blended whiskies.

In 1895, Queen Victoria awarded George Ballantine & Son a Royal Warrant, the ultimate endorsement of the company's prestigious reputation.

Then in 1910, Ballantine's Finest was developed and became the company's primary export. In the 1930’s, Ballantine's 30 Year Old was launched and the brand enjoyed substantial export growth in the key international markets of the US, Europe and Asia.

In 1938, the company received the Grant of Heraldic Arms, recognising George Ballantine & Son as an “incorporation noble on the Noblesse of Scotland”. This crest appears on every bottle of Ballantine's Scotch whisky to this day, featuring the Scottish flag and the four essential elements of whisky making: barley, water, a pot still and an oak cask.
