Either way, we’ve got the ultimate cocktail recommendations based upon those very qualities that were written for you in the stars.

Here are the zodiac signs, as Ballantine’s drinks.

If you’re an Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) you like things to be honest and straight to the point with no time for messing about. That’s why we’ve kept it on the rocks – or lose the ice and serve it neat if that’s your style.

Our Pisces friends (February 19 – March 20) are deep and compassionate folks who like to keep their cards close to their chest. So don’t be fooled by any negative first impressions, you can always trust a Pisces. A bit like Berry Beer… might not sound like your vibe at first, but trust us, you’ll like it.
