Ballantine’s Day 2024



Ballantine's Day Ballantine's Whisky Chocolate Milkshake

Say goodbye to the old-school stereotypes of Valentine’s Day this year and embrace Ballantine’s Day – the celebration of eating, doing and drinking the things you truly love.
Why not try these three ‘guilty pleasure’ cocktails inspired by some of the weird and wonderful combinations that we secretly adore. Whether you’re all about pickles, love dipping fries into a milkshake, or can’t resist the allure of parmesan, it’s time to mix things up your way.


No need to hide your love for salty snacks – embrace it with our very own take on the ‘pickle back’ combining pickle juice, lemon, Ballantine’s Finest and a little bit of sugary sweetness. A pickled delight!
