Monkey Shoulder was originally created to make perfect whisky cocktails and has been getting in the mix ever since.
Get a lovely whiff of zesty orange, vanilla, honey and spiced oak before tasting mellow vanilla with spicy hints as you enjoy a cheeky sip. Never one to stay quiet at a party, the smooth, malty and fruity character is bold enough to stand out in a drink, but balanced enough not to take it over.
“Richness and vibrancy combine with fruity aromas and mellow vanilla notes, making it perfect for mixing”
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Okay, so where did ‘Monkey Shoulder’ come from?
Well, in the traditional malt whisky making process, malted barley is turned by hand by malt men using large heavy malt shovels. Years ago, some malt men would develop a strain injury which had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey's, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'. Thankfully, the condition no longer exists but we're still proud to honour our whisky heritage.
