Monkey Shoulder is a unique blend made from three of Speyside’s finest single malts. The term ‘monkey shoulder’ itself comes from a slang term for an old maltmaker’s injury. There isn’t a single drop of grain whisky in this concoction, which creates one of the smoothest and most mellow-tasting blends on the market.
Since 2005, Monkey Shoulder has filled a gap in the market for a fun and easy-drinking yet premium brand of Scotch whisky. In the 15 years since that first batch, it’s become a favourite for enthusiasts to enjoy at home and professional bartenders to recommend and serve to their customers.
The beauty of this blend of three separate Speyside single malts is that it’s just as great on its own as it is with mixers, making it a great addition to a range of whisky-based cocktail recipes. The character of Monkey Shoulder whisky is rich and vibrant, with fruity aromas of orange that combine with mellow vanilla, honey and spiced oak for a super smooth finish.
