This is the first time the whisky superbrand has made a unique whisky for anybody.

It’s also the first time the world’s first and most awarded 17 Year Old blended whisky, the legendary Ballantine’s 17 Year Old, has been broken down into single malts, then specced up to a voluptuous 48% ABV and bottled in all its pure whisky glory, non-chill filtered and natural colour.

Glenburgie 17 Year Old is the first release from our Ballantine’s Signature Malt Series; three unique single malts that will take Members on an exclusive journey behind the iconic Ballantine’s blend. It’s going to be an awesome whisky adventure behind one of the world’s most iconic brands.

The collection includes four single malts — Puncheon, Peated Malt, Spanish Oak and Mizunara expressions that highlight each of the characteristics that make that Yamazaki the iconic malt it is.

 

The Macallan — The Macallan Edition No. 6

Kicking off in 2014, The Macallan released an annual limited-edition whisky that celebrates a facet of the distillery — from the distillery’s approach to whisky-making and the nuances of the whisky itself.
