The world's first "Triple Malt", a superb blended malt whisky from William Grant, made with three different single malts from the company's three neighbouring distilleries in Dufftown - Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie - and is great with mixers or just on its own. Smooth, sweet and very easy to drink. The result is a smooth, creamy, supple and very malty Scotch which works superbly well neat, over ice, or in whisky cocktails (where it really excels).
Country Of Origin: Scotland

There’s no grain whisky in the Monkey Shoulder, the chosen malts mature in first fill ex-bourbon casks so that they impart a smooth and mellow vanilla flavour into the resting malt whisky. The three Speyside malts are then blended together in a small marrying tun where they mature and develop a rich smooth blend for anything from three to six months.

This triple malt whisky gets bottled and receives its triple monkey badge.

The term 'monkey shoulder' harks back to whisky making heritage. It’s a reference to a condition that maltmen sometimes picked up while working long shifts, turning the barley by hand.  It had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey’s, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'

Today, the name Monkey Shoulder lives on as an affectionate tribute, to honour the hard graft of all the maltmen past and present.
