Berry Bros & Rudd are the oldest wine and spirit merchant in Britain, operating from the same premises in London's St James Street since their founding in 1698. It hasn't all been smooth sailing for the creator of the Cutty Sark brand though. They were the supplier of wine to the Titanic, and also played a part in smuggling alcohol into the States during prohibition.

Blue Hanger, a blended malt whisky (a category previously known as vatted malts) is named after William Hanger, the 3rd Lord Coleraine, a loyal customer of Berry Bros. & Rudd during the late 18th century. He was renowned for the striking blue clothes he wore and gained the soubriquet, “Blue Hanger”.

Bottled: 2010

45.6% ABV / 70cl
