PRODUCER: The Ballantine's brand was first started by George Ballantine in 1827. The recipe and brand name stayed in the family for decades. It was during this time, in 1910, that is current recipe for the blended Scotch whisky was made. It is still used today. The brand eventually changed ownership several times over its long history. As of 2005, the brand was bought by Pernod Ricard.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: To legally be a Scotch, the whisky must be distilled in Scotland. Ballantine's has several distilleries in Scotland. The process for making this beverage begins with distilling a variety of blended grains. As a blended whisky, several whiskeys are mixed together to create this beverage. Later, the liquid must age for a minimum of three years in oak barrels or casks before it is bottled. At this point, it stops maturing. For this reason, there is no reason for customers to try bottle-aging the beverage further- it just won't work.
Ballantine's is one of the most popular brands of Blended Scotch Whiskies, the second best selling in the world. The blend at the base of the brand's products is composed of 50 Single Malts - of which the "soul" are those coming from the Miltonduff and Glenburgie distilleries - and 4 Grain Whiskies, which together create a quality and extremely versatile drink.More about the Winery
