Terence Ong, managing director for Pernod Ricard Taiwan, a company that holds some of the world’s biggest whiskey names, said: “Ballantine’s was one of the first whiskey brands to come into the market and 15 years later, they are still here.Even so, Taiwan is a country where you have to innovate or your brand will get lost in the crowd.” These malts, each named after the distilleries they come from: Glenburgie, Miltonduff and Glentauchers, had their time as part of a blend and now, they get to shine in their own right.



Our spirits range includes all your favourite spirits categories, from liquor cabinet essentials like vodka, malt scotch whisky, bourbon and gin to imported liqueurs, rum and the other dark spirits you need to create a cocktail masterpiece at home, plus many, many more.Yet, despite the differences in culture and language, people of this island nation appreciate a bottle of Scotch as much as the average Scotsman.With a population of just three million, Taiwan is surprisingly the fourth-biggest nation for Scotch imports based on value.The world’s second best-selling Scotch whisky, which sells over 80 million bottles a year, has made the unprecedented move to give consumers a ‘unique opportunity’ to experience the flavour of the three main malt whiskies that comprise the Ballantine’s blend.
