Monkey Shoulder uses only malt Scotch whisky from three of Speyside's finest distilleries. This triple malt is catching the attention of the country's leading bartenders for its smooth and rich qualities, making it ideal for mixing as well as drinking in the more traditional way. As Charlotte Voisey, of London's Apartment 195 explains, 'the atractive name and bottle spark curiosity, and once explained, bring a smile to your face.'

Rooted in malt whisky lore, Monkey Shoulder is inspired by and named in honour of the malt men at William Grant, who are among the few still to turn the malting barley by hand using a sheil (wooden shovel). Monkey Shoulder was a nickname given to a temporary injury some malt men occasionaly suffered many years ago as a result of repeatedly bending over whilst turning the malt. Thankfully, working practices have now changed and the condition no longer exists.

Crafted in small batches of just 27 casks, Monkey Shoulder's smooth and and rounded taste has accents of malty sweetness, vanilla, marmalade and barley sugar. The iconic bottle design, complete with three brass monkeys - each representing one of the constituent single malts - on the bottle's shoulder, is sure to attract confident, liberal minded people with discerning taste and ensures it's not one to hide away in the drinks cabinet!

Fell in love with this one as soon as I tasted it. Mild and slightly sweet, it\'s become my drink of choice during my break at work. A double Monkey Shoulder goes wonderfully with a curry, so much so that it\'s become my own weekly tradition, and I\'ll definitely be picking a bottle up for my own collection at home.
