Honey is a must-have ingredient for any cocktail maker. Nature’s sugary syrup sweetens up any drink, adding that recognisable hint of floral pureness. It works with almost any flavour. Citrus, rich berries, spice, chocolate… you name it. All you gotta do is stir it in.
But whisky and honey? Now that’s a match made. They’re both smooth, sweet and slightly spiced. Each characterised by the landscape in which they’re made.
Lots of our whiskies have a detectable hint of honey. Take Ballantine’s Finest for example, our signature blend. The light gold liquid has a soft, heather honey aroma and floral after-taste.
So if you’re looking to make up something sweet during cocktail hour, a whisky honey drink is the way to go. Here’s our favourites.
