Monkey Shoulder History
Monkey Shoulder whisky is made up of small batches of different Speyside Single malt whiskies expertly blended then married together. This blend was originally created to make perfect whisky cocktails and has been getting in the mix ever since.
Premium Blended Scotch Whisky
Monkey Shoulder whisky — a Premium Blended Malt Scotch Whisky — is a bold and versatile blended 100% Malt whisky made for sipping neat, or mixing as preferred. The smooth, malty, and fruity character is bold enough to stand out in a drink, but balanced enough not to take it over.

Why is it called Monkey Shoulder?
An epic blend of Scotch malt whiskies were chosen to create the perfect whisky for mixing, and this one happened to be batch 27. But ‘Batch 27’ didn’t have the snappiest ring to it, so ‘Monkey Shoulder’ was chosen as a tribute to the makers’ whisky heritage.
Where does the phrase come from? ‘Monkey Shoulder’ was used to describe the men who stirred batches and got strains that caused their arms to hang limp (much like a monkey’s does). Thankfully, strains like these no longer occur, but the name is a mindful tribute to those who came before.
Can you drink monkey shoulder neat?
Unlike many whisky brands — made to be consumed straight or on the rocks — Monkey Shoulder was made for mixing! Transform yours into a delicious whisky ginger or a lazy ‘Old Fashioned’.
