The name Monkey Shoulder comes from the traditional malt whisky making process. In the old days, malt men would use large heavy malt shovels to turn malted barley by hand. Some of these malt men would develop a strain injury which had the tendency to cause their arm to hang down a little like a monkey and they nicknamed this condition “Monkey Shoulder”. The condition no longer exists but William Grant & Sons honour this whisky heritage. The bottle is labelled “Batch 27” as a reference to the original experimental batching of 27 casks. Bottled at the standard 40% ABV.
