Ballantine's Scotch Whisky is produced by the distillery of the same name, founded in 1827 by George Ballantine when he was only 19 years old. The production immediately proved to be of great quality, so much so that in 1895 it deserved the Royal Warrant, the highest recognition, from the then Queen Victoria. The square shape of the bottle was designed during the years of Prohibition, to allow businessmen to hide their whisky more easily inside briefcases. Today the prohibition no longer exists, but the bottle has retained its characteristic and iconic square shape.
Today Ballantine's is the Scottish whisky par excellence. The range of products has expanded to include several blends such as this Ballantine's Brasil , characterized by the addition of Brazilian lime peel infusion. An exclusive product, fresh and summery, which adds that exotic touch to a traditional spirit. The combination of whisky+lime proves to be winning and able to give great emotions from the first taste: a real ecstasy that comes from the combination of the traditions of Scotland and the passion of Brazil. It is ideal for those looking for something unique and out of the box.
Ballantine's Brasil is the perfect whisky for summer evenings, to drink on the rocks.
Description of Ballantine's Brasil
- Colour: Golden yellow.
- Aroma: Notes of caramel, honey, lime, vanilla and cinnamon.
- Taste: A warm, almost syrupy mouthful, with savoury and sweet flavours of barley, honey, and vanilla balanced by the zip of lime zest and undertones of cinnamon and ginger. A sweetish, dry, medium finish gives way to a fresh lime aftertaste.
PRODUCER: George Ballantine and Son
Ballantine's, owned by Chivas Brothers, forms part of the larger Pernod Ricard group.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: It was created by Ballantine's Master Blender Sandy Hyslop to honour the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, both hosted by Brazil. It is crafted by immersing dried Brazilian lime peel in muslin bags into second-fill American oak bourbon casks together with a special blend of Ballantine's Scotch whisky. After some time steeping, the lime-inflected whisky is brought together with more of the special blend to reduce and refine the lime portion, before the addition of sugar (just 2%) and vanilla essence.
Mix with lemonade on a hot day for a tall and mildly bitter refreshment. Ballantine's Brasil is extremely versatile as an innovative cocktail element: cut some lime garnishes and start experimenting.
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 Producer
