"The journey begins when we select three of Speyside's finest malts and allow them to mature in Bourbon casks prepared by our own coopers. The maturation process and cask selection are the exclusive responsibilities of the renown Malt Master, David Stewart, and his assistant. Only they know the exact length of maturation required and only when they are completely happy do they select a batch of 27 casks for blending, having tasted each one individually for quality and consistency.   After further cask ageing, and at just the right moment, the Malt Master decides the whisky is ready for bottling  and worthy of the signature metal monkeys that delcare it to be Monkey Shoulder Triple Malt Scotch Whisky."  --  Monkey Shoulder

Why the name?
"Cheers to the men of the maltings.   At one time, Monkey Shoulder referred to a temporary injury suffered by the malt men when turning the barley by hand.   Whilst our malt men are among the few who still turn the barley manually, working conditions are now such that fortunately the injury has been consigne to the past." - Monkey Shoulder
