Ballantine’s Limited was launched exclusively to Travel Retail in 2000 creating a new addition to its unrivalled ultra premium range. This unique product became part of the core Ballantine’s range and was then re-launched in 2009 with new packaging reflecting the same look and feel as the rest of the family. Ballantine’s Limited maintains the core characteristics of all products within the Ballantine’s brand, those of elegance and balance.
Ballantine’s Limited combines some of the rarest and most valuable malt whiskies. This blend is an extremely complex expression available in restricted quantities.
A complex and multi-layered blend, Ballantine’s Limited comprises rare, precious malts blended from carefully selected distilleries. Created by three generations of Master Blenders, this is a whisky which truly honours the traditions established by George Ballantine.
