Discover Bells original blended whisky

Bells The Original

They Say:

“The distinctive taste of Bell’s comes from bringing together a select blend of grain and fine malt whiskies, all matured in selected oak casks for a richer flavour. Gathered from whisky heartlands to include flavours like the smoky sea salt of the Islands and the fresh, sweet malts of Speyside they’re brought to the master blender at the Blair Athol distillery. There he marries them with our own rich, spiced and nutty malt to create Bell’s distinctive blend. It’s a recipe that dates back to the 19th century and has been raising the bar – and been raised in bars – ever since.”

A Great Everyday Whisky

In addition to having some of the best advertising in the business – if you’ve not seen their South African “The Reader” you can see it in my whisky & marketing post – Bells is also one of the best budget Supermarket blends about, I’d place it easily on par with Johnnie Walker Red which clocks in about £6 more.
