The Hankey Bannister brand dates back to 1757, when Messrs Hankey and Bannister formed their successful partnership, which would lead them to become one of the finest suppliers of wines and spirits, holding royal warrants under King George V and King Edward VII.
Their outstanding reputation, combined with a deliciously sophisticated blended Scotch whisky, resulted in Hankey Bannister becoming one of the favourite drinks of some of the most famous characters in history, including Prince Regent William IV, war-time Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and British writer Evelyn Waugh.
Since then, Hankey Bannister has continued to charm an ever-growing number of consumers with its smooth and complex blend of premium Scotch whiskies distilled at some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, including Balblair, Knockdhu and Balmenach, one of the first distilleries to be sanctioned under the Excise Act in 1823.
The result is a light, subtle blend with clean, sweet and spicy flavours entwined with honey tones for a pleasant, lasting finish.
