Newly – launched Bannermans Joins Whisky & Spirits Live!

Newly - launched Bannermans Joins Whisky & Spirits Live!

Get a taste of Bannermans at Whisky & Spirits Live on from 31 October – 2 November 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre!

Bannermans Finest Scotch Whisky is a Speyside-style Scotch Whisky, produced and blended in Scotland, just outside Edinburgh. 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, Bannermans 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 R199 – R220 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.

Tickets are available from Ranging from R260 – R320 each; tickets include a tasting glass, 16 tasting vouchers and a bottle of Consol Glass Still Water. High-end lifestyle products will be accessible from 17h00, while the Tasting Hall opens at 18h00 until 22h00.
