Meet Messrs. Hankey and Bannister. Theirs is a story of what happens when two remarkable men share an idea and follow it through with conviction and passion. They determined to make their own superior Scotch whisky blend and together they created a true aristocrat amongst whiskies, which has been enjoyed in society for over 250 years.
|Hankey Bannister is crafted from the finest Highland Malts, including single malts from our Old Pulteney, Balblair, AnCnoc, Speyburn and Balmenach distilleries. These are then expertly combined with the more delicate Lowland Grain whiskies to produce our unique blend.
Staying true to the original recipe, all the malted barley used for Hankey Bannister Original is air dried without using peat smoke. This allows the delicate, subtle flavours to be freely expressed and create the smooth blend that Hankey Bannister is renowned for.
All our malt and grain spirit is then left to quietly mature in oak, within our red brick dunnage warehouses for a minimum of three years, where each cask slowly develops its own unique style.
