Hankey Bannister Blended Scotch Whisky

Hankey Bannister has one of the most colourful histories in the whisky industry. Its founders, the flamboyant Mr Beaumont Hankey and his astute business partner Mr Hugh Bannister, were the owners of a prestigious wine and spirits merchants with a history dating back to 1757.

Mr Beaumont Hankey was a man about town, with his own superior aristocratic connections, he was well aware of the high standards expected by ladies and gentlemen of quality when choosing spirits. But Hankey was no good at managing the practical side of the business but his partner Mr Hugh Bannister was a gentleman with a very shrewd business sense coupled with an industrious nature and wealth of experience to boot.

And so it was that the two of them set out together in the pursuit of a single goal – that of providing the very finest wines and spirits to the good people of London.

Over the years word spread throughout the Empire about Hankey Bannister and their blended Scotch whiskies are still enjoyed by people across the globe today.

Hankey Bannister’s eponymous whisky is a smooth and complex blend of premium Scotch whiskies which were awarded royal warrants under King George V and Edward VII and were enjoyed by the likes of Winston Churchill, the Prince Regent William IV and the Dukes of Norfolk and Queensberry. The founders’ legacy of shared values, mutual respect and complementary skills and experiences continues to embody the brand to this day.
