Monkey Shoulder

Triple Malt Whisky

Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder is free-spirited, fun-loving triple malt with an easy-going, smooth, rich and mellow vanilla deliciousness that means it can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, mixed or in cocktails. Scotch snobs say you shouldn’t drink whisky with ice or mix it with cocktails, but there are no old-fashioned rules when it comes to enjoying Monkey Shoulder.

While authentic to its core, it’s named after an old tale about distillery workers – years ago, they would shovel tonnes of malting barley by hand, hour after hour. This hard work sometimes caused a sore shoulder and their arm to hang down, a bit like a chimpanzee. The men called this temporary affliction ‘monkey shoulder’ and the Scotch is named in their honour.

Monkey Shoulder is available in limited quantities at leading liquor stores nationwide from R310 a bottle.
