Why do whisky and ginger ale go together so well?
Whisky and ginger make a stellar combo. It’s no wonder they’re paired together in a bunch of popular cocktails from the Penicillin to the Kentucky Mule. Both bring a blend of spiced sweet flavours, balanced by the ginger ale’s bubbly lightness and the whisky’s creamy smoothness. Mix the two together or pour in other complimentary ingredients like honey, cinnamon and zingy lime for an ultra refreshing drink.

What’s the best whisky to mix with ginger ale?
Ginger ale is a light mixer that can handle the heat of any whisky. Its subtle fiery kick compliments any blend but we reckon the best whisky is one that’s smooth and spiced. Like Ballantine’s Finest, our award-winning scotch that’s stayed true to the original recipe since 1910.
