Internet-born blend for the modern age. 
 
Carin Luna-Ostaseski was a web designer who was introduced to Whisky and fell for it hard. So, she trained as a bartender, interviewed experts, and set her mind to creating her own brand. What does the modern, internet savvy entrepreneur do to address such an expensive and risky proposition? That’s right… she launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 raising more than $45,000 to launch her dream. SIA Scotch Whisky was born as a perfect analogy for craft Whisky production in the modern era.
 
Hunter Laing and Company have been vatting and blending special edition Whiskies for generations, and when Carin set out to concoct her masterpiece, she knew that they would a great partner to give her a hand. SIA Scotch is a blend of Speyside and Highland Single Malts with a touch of Islay added in for a bit of depth and character. 
 
You will notice a dark, honey-gold color that usually speaks to older Spirits. But the magic combination of specific drams and ages remains their trade secret. The fruit of their effort is getting rave reviews and awards — taking the Double Gold at San Francisco in 2014 and scoring above 90 pts with Wine Enthusiast and "Outstanding!" with Whisky Advocate. 

Smartass Corner: 
SIA — pronounced "see-ya" — means "six" is Scottish Gaelic. So, why did Carin name her Whisky Sia? Because it is her favorite number that’s why.

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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
