Ballantine's 40 Year
Ballantine’s // Scotland
This is the oldest expression in Ballantine's core range. Each component of this blended Scotch matured for at least 40 years, drawn from a selection of barrels amassed over multiple generations from various distilleries, many no longer in operation. First launched in 2012, a very limited release of 100 bottles are produced annually. Each is packaged in a wooden box with the Ballentine's crest etched in silver, designed by renowned British silversmith Richard Fox.
