It’s that time of year once again when, for one night only, the witches, ghouls and monsters come out of the woodwork and take over the town.

ABOUT MONKEY SHOULDER WHISKY
Monkey Shoulder is a unique combination of three different Speyside single malts expertly blended then married together, creating a smooth, versatile and approachable whisky.
The name is rooted in malt whisky history and inspired by the malt men who turned the malting barley by hand with a shiel (wooden Shovel) and developed a temporary strain known by the men as Monkey Shoulder. Thankfully practices have changed and the condition no longer exists!
Not that we like to brag, but Monkey Shoulder’s mantelpiece is resplendent with numerous awards and accolades including winners of double gold at the 2017 International Wine and Spirits Competition, gold at the 2017 Global Spirits Masters and gold in the 2017 International Spirits Challenge. Not to forget, we were also the 2017 world top trending scotch whisky for the fourth year in a row!
