Ballantines Whisky Brand
Pernod Richard produces Ballantine's, a blended Scotch whiskey, in Dumbarton, Scotland. In 1827, George Ballantine opened a grocery store in Edinburg intending to produce a high-quality blended whisky. When George opened a larger store in Glasgow in 1965, he transferred the grocery operations to his son Archibald. Archibald took on the role with dedication and commitment, creating his brand blends in the process, which increased demand for the product.
George Junior was inspired by his brother's efforts and decided to join the company. They created "George Ballantine and Son Ltd" together, which quickly grew and added a bonded warehouse in no time. The company quickly increased in strength, and they began exporting Scotch mixes in no time. The company has garnered various honors and awards for its products. After uncovering an unchartered Scotch whisky market, the company went further into Europe. The drink's reputation had substantially improved by the mid-1980s, and the whisky had a wide distribution. The company continued to grow, and in 1986 it was named the third largest blended whiskey brand in the world.
