We thought: why not finish Ballantine's in bourbon barrels? So we did. Ballantine's 7 Bourbon Finish is a new Scotch whisky, aged for seven years and finished in bourbon barrels all the way from the USA. Give yourself the best of both worlds: the depth of Scotch with the sweetness of a bourbon barrel finish.
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. Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Finish is a nod to our heritage, as our records show George Ballantine was ageing and selling 7-year-old whiskies way back in 1872! We recommend you enjoy Ballantine’s 7 Bourbon Finish in an Old Fashioned with a few dashes of orange bitters to complement the sweeter notes of the whisky. But we know it also goes great neat, on the rocks or in a highball with cola.
