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.

When he began working in the distillery business as a bookkeeper in 1866, he could hardly imagine that his own whisky brand would become an internationally successful business. Or that five decades later, the distillery would still remain in the hands of his family.More about the Producer
