ABOUT THE BALVENIE
The Balvenie is a unique range of single malts created by David C. Stewart MBE, The Balvenie Malt Master who was awarded an MBE for services to the Scotch whisky industry by Queen Elizabeth II in 2016. Each expression has a very individual taste, but is rich, luxuriously smooth and underpinned by the distinctively honeyed character of The Balvenie.
The Balvenie is dedicated to the five rare crafts that are used to create The Balvenie’s distinctive taste. It is the only distillery that still grows its own barley, uses traditional floor maltings and keeps both coppersmiths and coopers on site – making The Balvenie the most handcrafted of single malts.

ABOUT MONKEY SHOULDER
Monkey Shoulder is a malt whisky blended from three of Speyside’s finest single malts, using batches of just 27 casks for a smoother richer taste.
The name is rooted in malt whisky history and inspired by the malt men who still turn the malting barley by hand. The skill of the malt man is demonstrated when he turns the malting barley using a shiel (wooden Shovel). Years ago some Malt men used to develop a temporary strain known by the men as Monkey Shoulder. Thankfully practices have changed and the condition no longer exists!

ABOUT HENDRICK’S GIN
Hendrick’s Gin is a deliciously super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement. Unlike ordinary gins, Hendrick’s Gin is distilled in Scotland, in small batches of only 500 litres at a time. Only Hendrick’s Gin is made with infusions of cucumber and rose petals, alongside a blend of 11 botanicals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma. Hendrick’s Gin is made in a combination of a Carter-Head and copper pot still, creating a divinely smooth gin with both character and balance of subtle flavours.
