Description

Cobalt Blue Bottle with Lid that says "George Ballantine and Sons, Dumbarton and Elgin" with Company Emblem. The bottle was used for Blended Whiskey from Scotland. It has embossed on the bottom the letter M in a circle and the words "Design Pat" and numbers 97178 5. From my research and I did a lot this bottle is old from the late 1800s to early 1900s. It could have been filled with Tea or Malt Blended Whiskey.

This bottle is very collectible and is a great find for collectors'. It could also be used as barware, home decoration or as a vase etc.

HISTORY:
George Ballantine once said "Be yourself, be authentic, be genuine and the stories that you live will deserve to be toasted" Blending was in George Ballantine’s nature. He started with tea as a lad, but moved to malts later when he found the ambition that comes with one's own self belief Ballantine’s Finest is the oldest recipe in the current range, created in 1910 by the Ballantine’s family.

There are more than 40 malts and grains in this blend. These are carefully selected from 4 different iconic Scottish regions. In 1883, George Ballantine could boast 20,000 gallons of blended stock in bond, so he began to allow malts to age. Over the years a more discerning flavour was born - one that would make an outstanding mixer.

George Ballantine changed the whisky market by staying true to his integrity. A legacy that lives on - in 2011, Jim Murray named the definitive 17 year old ‘whisky of the year’ It takes conviction to allow malts to age, but the refined outcome of a matured whisky, such as Ballantine's 21, is something people will respect.

In 1895, HRH Queen Victoria herself awarded Ballantine’s a Royal Warrant.While other businesses focused on local distribution, George Ballantine traded across all borders.

Now his Prestige blends, such as Ballantine's 30 Year Old, are legendary around the world, from Aberdeen to Asia. Lord Lyon in 1938 granted Ballantine's heralding arms, a true badge of honour. Our shield, the Ballantine's crest, is on every Ballantine's bottle to this day and proudly emblazoned in gold on our 40 year old blend. Sandy Hyslop is only the 5th master blender since George Ballantine’s time. With Ballantine’s Limited, he remains true to 180 years of precious expertise.

Ballantine's is a range of blended Scotch whiskies produced by Pernod Ricard in Dumbarton, Scotland.

The world's second highest selling Scotch whisky. Historically it has been strong in Southern Europe where it was among the first Scotch whiskies to gain a foothold in the market.

The heritage of Ballantine's Scotch whisky can be traced back to 1827, when farmer's son George Ballantine set up a small grocery store in Edinburgh supplying a range of whiskies to his clientele.

In 1865 George delegated the store's operation to his eldest son, Archibald, while he opened a larger establishment in Glasgow. Here he concentrated on the wine and spirit trade, catering to clients which included the Hindu Royal Family. He also began to create his own blends. These inspired additional demand, drawing second son, George junior, into the business. Trading as "George Ballantine and Son Ltd", the firm added a bonded warehouse and began to export their Scotch. George senior retired in 1881, George junior taking over, and died 10 years later at 83.

Business thrived under George junior, and the family sold out profitably to the firm of Barclay and McKinlay in 1919.[citation needed] Building on the reputation and goodwill of the "Ballantine's" name, the new owners focused on developing it as a brand for their blended whiskys. When increasing resources were needed to compete fully in the growing world market, the internationally experienced Canadian distilling concern of Hiram Walker Gooderham & Worts acquired Ballantine's in 1937. The same year the company received the Grant of Heraldic Arms featured on their bottles, recognising George Ballantine & Son as an "incorporation noble on the Noblesse of Scotland".

The new owners' first task was to secure fillings, to which end the Miltonduff and Glenburgie Distilleries were purchased, and a massive new grain distillery – the largest in Europe – built at Dumbarton.[citation needed] During the 1960s the company turned to Europe - at that time an unexplored market for Scotch whisky – and by 1965 had secured such a strong foothold there that it resolved to gear the home trade to supporting the overseas business.

Strong distribution and the popularity of Scotch whisky in the mid-1980s were key influencers in growth. Ballantine's was named the number one brand in Europe and the third largest in the world in 1986 with the oldest product Ballantine's Finest. In Korea, Ballantine's is the clear number one in the super-premium category with its ever-popular Ballantine's 17 in addition to 21 and 30. In 1988, the Company became part of the global beverage conglomerate Allied Domecq.

In 2002 the large Dumbarton Grain distillery was mothballed, with production shifting to the Strathclyde Grain distillery in the Gorbals of Glasgow.

In 2005 Ballantine's was acquired by Pernod Ricard. Ballantines still maintain a large bonded warehouse complex in Dumbarton East and a bottling plant to the North of the town.

In 2006, Sandy Hyslop was appointed as Ballantine's Master Blender – the 5th Master Blender in Ballantine's 180-year history
