Analysis

The Hankey Bannister blend is not one of the better known blended Scotch Whiskies despite having a long history. It's made by Inver House Distillers and is named after its founders Beaumont Hankey and Hugh Bannister. The Hankey Bannister brand offers six tiers (four include age statements) of Whisky with this the "Original" being the entry level offering.

How to Enjoy

Enjoy straight, on the rocks, or in simple cocktails like Whisky and ginger.
