"One of the world’s finest Scotch whiskies, Ballantine’s is the world’s No 2 Scotch Whisky brand with annual sales of 6.2 million nine litre cases, which makes 2bottles a second. Farmer’s son George Ballantine had a simple idea in mind when he opened his grocery and whisky business in Edinburgh in 1827: sell the highest quality products with dignity, integrity and courtesy. His reputation grew, as did a dedicated clientele, and he soon moved to new premises where he could concentrate on producing his increasingly renowned whisky. For Ballantine, blending was an art form, and his experiments with different malts from a range of distilleries, produced a whisky with new dimensions of flavour: light, sophisticated, and smooth on the palate. As word of his whisky’s elegant, subtle taste spread, Ballantine found himself supplying connoisseurs throughout Scotland. By 1881, Ballantine & Son was exporting to a worldwide market. Two important awards followed fairly quickly after: in 1895, Queen Victoria awarded George Ballantine & Son with the Royal Warrant, the ultimate endorsement of the company’s prestigious reputation, and in 1938 the label was awarded its own coat of arms by Lord Lyon, Scotland’s King of Arms. The coat of arms features the Scottish flag and four essential elements of whisky making: barley, water, a pot still and an oak cask and continues to appear on each bottle, the ultimate endorsement of the brand’s reputation.
