Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, rooted in malt whisky history, and inspired by our malt men and still turn the maltings barley by hand. ‘Monkey Shoulder’ is a finest single malt using batches of just 27 casks for a smoother richer taste.
The skill of the malt man is demonstrated when he turns the malting barley with a shiel (wooden shovel). Years ago, some malt men used to develop a temporary strain known as Monkey Shoulder but working practices have changed and thankfully the condition no longer exists. Inspired by their craft, we’ve created Monkey Shoulder, our first blended ‘triple’ malt Scotch Whisky.
Unlike traditional blends, Monkey Shoulder uses just three of Speyside’s finest single malts, and no grain whisky, resulting in a richer blended malt of exceptional smoothness.
