Why the name Monkey Shoulder?
Monkey Shoulder was a nickname given to ligament injury sometimes sustained by malt men, who spend a lot of time bending over to turn the malted barley by hand using large heavy malt shovels. The result is a kind of repetitive strain injury to the shoulder causing one arm to droop a bit like a monkey's forelimb, which they nicknamed "monkey shoulder". Turning the barley by hand is a fairly ancient practice, however, the condition has changed today, thanks to the modernization of production techniques, but William Grant & Sons is still proud to honor its malt men and their whisky heritage.
There is something about being real. Monkey shoulder has lived to its core of creating a unique spirit of exceptional quality, superb for mixing. Its unique qualities have made it an equal play on the mainstream whisky brands and have consistently enjoyed vast popularity among whisky drinkers. Monkey Shoulder is not a whisky only to enjoy on Wednesday night and weekend but it is a drink to enjoy any day.
