Grant’s Ale Cask Finish Blended Whisky

Introducing the New Grant’s Ale Finish Blended Whisky

William Grant & Sons, a whisky company form Scotland, is popular for its luxury single malt brands, such as the Glenfiddich and Balvenie. It also has the third largest blended Scotch label in the world, the Grant’s. They will be introducing a new whisky to its American market under the Grant’s label.

Their new variety, Grant’s Ale Cask Finish Blended Whisky, was kept for 4 months in barrels that had previously undisclosed ale. Brian Kinsman, the master blender of Grant’s, partnered with a small Scottish brewing company to utilize their ale casks for the production of this new whisky. After the maturation process, the bottle gives drinkers a distinctively creamy, malty, and honey flavor.

“I thoroughly enjoy working with different finishes on our blended whiskies — it’s a fascinating process to monitor the evolution as the casks work their magic on the liquid. We have the end result in mid as we craft all our whiskies but there is something special about adding the final touch with an interesting finish. The resulting flavor of the whisky is so reminiscent of the liquid previously held in the cask, it takes the drinker’s palate on a really remarkable journey,” Kinsman said in a statement.

According to Rob Allanson, the Global Ambassador for Grant, the Grant Ale Cask shows the blending skills and innovation pedigree that were handed down by Master Blenders for generations. There is currently no blended Scotch available in the market that was finished in ale casks. He added that they’re proud to be known for being the producer of a unique and award-winning whisky.

The Grant’s Ale Cask Finish has been awarded with a silver medal during the Global Scotch Whisky Masters 2015. It is available today in the selected local markets in 750 ml bottles.
