An unforgettably smooth Scotch blend.

Spencerfield Spirits was set up in a small town in Scotland by Alex Nicol, a former marketing director at Glenmorangie. Spencerfield is a family run business dedicated to producing quality niche alternatives to more known conventional mainstream brands. Their flagship product is the Sheep Dip and Pig’s Nose is its stable mate – both curiously named due to the fact that the blender is located on a farm.

There's a couple of things you should know about Pig's Nose Blend. First of all, let's talk about the name: when a piece of fabric for example was really, really smooth back in the day, farmers would describe it to be as soft as a pig's nose. Now, Pig's Nose Blend is a blend of Speyside, Islay and Lowland malts with superior gentle grain Whiskies and it really is that smooth. It was crafted by 3rd-generation Master Blender Richard Patterson who selected 1st fill American oak casks to age the base – Invergordon grain Whisky. Then, Patterson added 5 premium Single Malts to the mix: 3 from Speyside, 1 from the Highlands, and 1 from Islay. The result is a harmonious balance of flavors on the elegantly light, luscious and creamy palate.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
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.
