The Naked Grouse is a small batch, craft whisky from The Famous Grouse – the no. 1 whisky in UK and the best-selling whisky in the home of Scotch whisky, Scotland since 1980.
The Naked Grouse is a pure expression of the Master Blender’s craft. Selecting aged whiskies from famous distilleries like the Glenturret (Scotland’s oldest working distillery), these are then double matured in small batches in the best quality, first-fill sherry casks.
This extra time spent in cask imparts a rich colour, smooth character and a naturally sweet and spicy taste profile. An aroma of cherries and oak gives way to sweet wine notes, plums and a hint of cinnamon. The Naked Grouse is often compared to a rich fruit cake in a glass… Christmas in July took on a new meaning when we sampled this! (For those who don’t work in PR, Christmas in July is the series of events PR companies organise in the month of July to promote their clients seasonal Christmas products to be launched later in the year).
