Monkey Shoulder: Where Your Monkey Should Be.

You’ve heard it, get the monkey off your back, but you might not have heard the follow-through — it’s Monkey Shoulder that you want. Sure, most definitely, get those nagging problems off your back, set yourself free and relax. Maybe the best way to start? With some Monkey Shoulder Blended Malt Scotch Whiskey.

The name actually comes from the workers (maltmen) turning the barley by hand. It tended to make their arms hang down like a monkey’s, thus the nickname. Monkey Shoulder’s maltmen still turn the barley manually, but conditions have improved and shoulder injuries are a thing of the past, but it’s an honored and ongoing tribute to those who came before.

Monkey Shoulder Triple Malt Scotch Whisky

Monkey Shoulder is mellow, absolutely no grain whisky involved. The ‘triple’ malts mature in first-fill ex-bourbon casks, a mix that’s chosen by the Malt Master for every batch, which “hang out” together for 3-6 months before yielding the rich and smooth final results. It’s 100% malt Scotch whisky that’s distilled, matured and bottled in Scotland. Who says the best monkeys come from the southern hemisphere anyway? Go bananas! Try some Monkey Shoulder this weekend. We recommend a little Brass Monkey.
