About Blue Hanger
William Hanger was the 3rd Baron Coleraine and a member of the British Parliament during the American Revolutionary War. During the late 18th Century, Hanger was a loyal customer of Berry Bros. and Rudd, Britain’s oldest and most prestigious wine and spirits merchant (it was established in 1698). Renowned for the striking blue clothes he wore each day, Hanger eventually earned the moniker "Blue Hanger."
Blue Hanger Scotch Whisky is a marriage (referred to as a "vatting" in the spirits industry) of single malt whiskies produced in Scotland. The label was revived after Doug McIvor, Berry Bros. & Rudd’s Spirits Manager, "experimented with a handful of samples that had arrived on my desk. I was keen to understand how the personality of each cask would interact with the others, and I created a blended malt that we just had to bottle."
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
