Monkey Shoulder is the latest blended whisky from William Grant & Sons.

Guy Middleton, brand innovation manager at William Grant & Sons, said: We are looking to demystify malt whisky and offer new consumers an accessible, great-tasting malt that retains authenticity, while breaking the more traditional malt mould. The feedback so far from the trade has been very positive, and we hope consumers will be as upbeat about the product.'
