Soak up that beer baby.

William Grant opened his first distillery in Scotland in 1887 with the help of his seven sons and two daughters. William Grant surely knew a thing or two about a good workforce. George Grant was his maltman, Charlie Grant operated the tuns, Alec Grant was his still-man, and his youngest daughter Meta? Well, the seven-year-old brought the boys lunch. Five generations later, William Grant & Sons is still family owned. Now that's what we call a family business.

The only Scotch blend to be matured in Edinburgh Ale casks and finished in oak, this is a creamy and smooth expression. The ale casks are filled for 30 days, giving them time to soak up the richness of the brew. This blend has a vanilla sweetness, carried from both the oak and the ale. An exciting product to invest in, not only for its uniqueness, but also for its exceptional flavor.

Medium-body and quite smooth, some herbal notes and a little sweetness, something vegetal lurks.

Medium-body and well-balanced. The cask notes are subtle but present, there are some gentle vegetal notes with a hoppy note, there are fudge notes with barley.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
