Description

Monkey Shoulder is determined to mix things up in a world where tradition reigns. Authentic to its core, Monkey Shoulder only uses malt Scotch whisky from three of Speyside’s finest distilleries. Rooted in malt whisky lore, the name Monkey Shoulder referred to a temporary injury suffered by the malt-men when turning the barley by hand. As working practices have since changed, the injury no longer exists and now, the name Monkey Shoulder lives on as an affectionate tribute to the malt-men of yore in recognition of the times they suffered for their art. On its own Monkey Shoulder is smooth and rich. However, this is a whisky that loves to mingle so check out the website for cocktails, or ask your bartender to have a crack at making their best Monkey Shoulder serve.
