Bannermans at the Whisky & Spirits Live Festival

Bannerman’s Finest Scotch Whisky is a Speyside-style Scotch Whisky, produced and blended in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh in Scotland. Made using older, more complex malt whiskies than those used in most blends, Bannermans has a bolder, more complex flavour than other blends. The aged malts also contribute towards its exceptionally long, smooth finish.

 

In a category dominated by multinational drinks giants, Bannerman’s Finest Scotch Whisky is owned by South African entrepreneur, Rowan Leibbrandt, the founding owner of Truman & Orange, a premium drinks company with a national footprint. Taking on corporate giants in the largest segment (blends) of the largest drinks category in South Africa (whisky), Truman & Orange is backing the aptly named Bannermans as the urban, high-quality Scotch whisky that South African whisky drinkers have been waiting for. “As the first significant new brand launch in blended whisky to hit South African shelves in many years, Bannermans gives Scotch drinkers an opportunity to try a new, independently-made, beautifully-crafted Scotch Whisky,” says Rowan.

 

The ‘banner man’ was the king’s standard bearer who had the honour of carrying his flag into war. Retailing at a competitive R179 per bottle, Bannermans embodies Truman & Orange’s entrepreneurial bravery and their vision of changing the drinks landscape in SA driven by the ‘drink better’ motto. Available at all good liquor stores.

 

Bannerman’s Finest Scotch Whisky: the new kid on the block at Whisky & Spirits Live

It’s been a while since they’ve seen an interesting blended Scotch hit their shelves. Enter Bannermans Finest Scotch Whisky, brought to South Africans by none other than local entrepreneur and founding owner of innovative premium drinks company, Truman & Orange. Bannerman’s Finest Scotch Whisky is a Speyside-style Scotch Whisky, produced and blended in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh in Scotland.

 

So, what makes Bannermans special?

Made using older, more complex malt whiskies than those used in most blends, Bannermans has a bolder, more complex flavour than other blends. The aged malts also contribute towards its exceptionally long, smooth finish.

It is made using a uniquely slow distillation process which ensures longer contact with the copper still, creating its beautifully fruity flavours.

Aged in oak casks, Bannermans’ maturation uses a high proportion of sweet Spanish sherry casks, to create an unusually smooth, rich character.

Set to soothe the increasingly sophisticated South African palate’s hankering for something different, interesting and authentic, Bannermans offers the urban (and progressively urbane) South African drinker something new, in a category long-dominated by a handful of global brands.

While Bannermans is surprisingly smooth and easy drinking on the rocks, it also mixes beautifully with both Cola and Ginger Ale. It will be serve at all three ways at their stand at Whisky & Spirits Live, on at the Sandton Convention Centre from 6 – 8 November. Don’t miss out!
