Product Description

  • Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
  • Great with mixers or just on its own, Monkey Shoulder's rich playful style deserves to be a permanent fixture in your drink's cupboard. From your classic Old Fashioned to your modern Penicillin, its richness and vibrancy combine with mellow vanilla notes to make it an awesome pairing to many a concoction and occasion. Swing by for cocktail recipes and make yours a monkey.
  • So why call it Monkey Shoulder? Hmmm… sounds like a Monkey Shoulder could be a medical condition. Yes, absolutely right. When malting barley by hand, years ago, some malt men would develop a strain injury known as Monkey Shoulder. To this day, the malting barley is still turned by hand (although no injuries are allowed to occur thanks to ‘elf' ‘n' safety) and for the highest quality whisky blending is carried out in small batches.
  • Inspired by the malt man's craft, Monkey Shoulder marries three of Speyside's finest single malt whiskies, resulting in a rich blended malt of exceptional smoothness
  • Pack size: 70CL


Tasting Notes

  • Monkey Shoulder will wake up your taste buds with notes of mellow vanilla and spiciness while zesty orange, vanilla honey and spiced oak wafts up your nose.

Preparation and Usage

  • Great with mixers or on its own. We've been monkeying around with some cheeky takes on classic serves… How about on the rocks as a ‘Brass Monkey' (straight from the bottle), short as a ‘Lazy Old Fashioned' cocktail, long as a ‘Ginger Monkey' (for house parties) or hot as a ‘Monkey Hot Toddy' (for a winter warmer).
  • Why not try a Ginger Monkey? Fill long glass with ice, pour in the Monkey Shoulder and dry ginger ale. Gently stir and garnish with orange wedge.

I'm a bourbon drinker but someone gave me a bottle of this for Christmas and it's very moreish. I drink liquor straight and chilled. Having a bottle of this in your fridge is a great idea.

Love the little bottle shape.

I have never been a fan of whiskey but thought I’d try it and be open minded, sufficed to say I’m nicely surprised as I enjoyed it more than I’d expected. It’s smooth and warming with no nasty after taste [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Very tasty dram

Review from

This is a really good introduction to Scotch whisky with enough character to make it interesting without being overwhelming for someone new exploring whisky. It also works very well in cocktails such as an Old fashioned again as it has some really good flavours which stand out even when mixed [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Fantastic Whiskey!

First time trying monkey shoulder and I've asked my son to look out for it for my Christmas gift this year. I'm normally a bells drinker but I'm now converted to the grants range. Lovely smooth blend but packed with flavour and do smooth. Fantastic, can't wait to see what I can try next. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Review from

I was sent a sample of the monkey shoulder whiskey to try. Not being a whiskey drinker I was apprehensive. I needn't have worried. It was smooth and didn't burn your throat as you sipped it (as has been my experience with other whiskeys ). I really enjoyed this and would buy it in.the future.

Review from

I had never heard of Monkey Shoulder before and upon receiving it i thought it would be a bland mass produced spirit. How wrong was I.! It had a lovely aroma and the taste was so smooth and warming that I enjoyed every drop. I would defiantly buy this again if I saw it in stores. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Review from

The best blended whiskey I have ever tasted. A nice blended Scotch made for those times when you don't want something too complex or pretentious. It hits the right notes on the nose with ripe fruit, smooth barley malt, and lightly toasted oak. On the palate, chewy caramel, sweet baking spices, vanilla malt and a hint of roasted pistachio at the outer edges. Just right for an evening with friends.soft sweet and easy to drink.
