New Booze: Blue Hanger Scotch Whisky
Anchor Distilling introduces Blue Hanger 7th Limited
Release, a United States exclusive from Berry Bros. & Rudd Spirits. Limited to only 3,088 bottles, this new
variant of Blue Hanger is comprised of the following whiskies; one hogshead of
Bruichladdich 1992, one butt of Bunnahabhain 1990, four hogsheads of Miltonduff
1997, and two hogsheads of Bunnahabhain Moine (peated) 2006.
This blended malt
whisky is named after William “Blue” Hanger, the Third Lord Coleraine, a loyal
customer of Berry Bros. at the end of the 18th century. Blue Hanger was
originally a blended Scotch whisky intended for the diplomatic export market in
1934, but disappeared for a period of time until 2003 when Doug McIvor, spirits
manager, began his experiments in vatting malts.
As with every expression of Blue Hanger, the strength is
45.6%, in recognition of the original Berry Bros. blend, which was bottled at
20 below proof. Blue Hanger 7 is only available in the United States at SRP
