Decades ago, when men were engaged in the handling of grains that would later be used to make whiskey, it was common for repetitive movements to lead them to develop a shoulder injury known as Monkey Shoulder : hence the name of this drink.
It is a combination of three types of malt that are mixed by experts to achieve the soft and desired unification that is known today. The varieties Glenfiddich, Balvenie, and Kininvie are chosen to give life to this exquisite drink, a whiskey that is gaining prestige among the most important producers of liquor in the world.

- 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!
