In the traditional malt whisky-making process, malted barley is turned by hand by malt men using large heavy malt shovels. Years ago, some malt men would develop a strain injury which had a tendency to cause their arm to hang down a bit like a monkey's, so they nicknamed it 'monkey shoulder'.
Thankfully, the condition no longer exists but to honor the whisky heritage, the whisky is called "Monkey Shoulder"
Monkey Shoulder is made from small batches of different Speyside single malts that are expertly blended together. It is rich and vibrant with fruity aromas and mellow vanilla notes, making it perfect for mixing.
