About this deal

Regularly drinking more than the low risk drinking guidelines increases your risk of serious health conditions including heart problems, high blood pressure and poor mental health. Alcohol contains around seven calories a gram, almost as many as pure fat. So, because whisky contains a lot of alcohol, it’s high in calories too. A typical 25ml single of whisky can contain 61 calories. Bell's Blended Scotch Whisky comes from some of the finest malt whiskies in Scotland - from the fresh, sweet malts of Speyside to the smoky sea salt of the Islands - all matured in selected oak casks for a richer flavour. The malt at the heart of the Bell's blend is rich, spiced and nutty, and comes from our home, the Blair Athol distillery. Bell's was established in 1825 in Scotland by Arthur Bell. Despite blending some of Scotland's finest whiskies for over 50 years, Arthur never put his name on the bottle because he believed a great whisky should speak for itself. It was only after his death that his son, AK Bell, labelled his father's creation with the name we know today.

Drinking alcohol also causes at least seven types of cancer, including breast, bowel, mouth and throat cancers. 2 The risk of developing these types of cancer starts to increase even at low levels of drinking - so the less you drink, the more you reduce your risk. Using a jigger, measure 50ml Bell's Original Blended Scotch Whisky into the glass. Top up with 50ml ginger ale. As well as having a high calorie content on its own, if you mix whisky with a sugary mixer like lemonade or ginger beer, you could end up drinking far more calories than you realise.

Whisky is a strong alcoholic drink. Legally, any whisky (or ‘whiskey') sold in the UK must be at least 40% alcohol by volume (ABV). 1 That means forty percent of the drink is pure alcohol - and if the ABV is higher, the percentage of alcohol is higher too. Drinking more than 14 single measures of whisky in a week would mean you are drinking more than the UK low risk drinking guidelines. Pubs and bars used to commonly serve spirits like whisky in 25ml measures - that’s about one unit of alcohol per measure of whisky. But these days many pubs and bars have switched to 35ml or 50ml measures – meaning you might be having a lot more alcohol without realising.
