The Black Grouse – For the distinctive character
The Black Grouse is a bold and distinctive whisky with an intriguing blend of smoky, peated malts – perfect for the family member with a unique character of their own. The whisky is an intriguing blend of The Famous Grouse with specially selected peated malts giving the whisky its distinct smoky smooth flavour profile. On the palate, the peaty character comes through in spice and dried fruit flavours, and smoky oak that leaves a long aromatic finish. For a simple Christmas cocktail, we recommend The Black & Black – The Black Grouse with cola and a twist of orange.

This whisky is a perfectly balanced, rare blend that has a flamboyantly rich and sweet at first before giving away to layers of smoke. The Black Grouse Alpha Edition is presented in a striking gift box, which tells the story of this rich, smoky premium liquid and the bird that it is named after.

The Naked Grouse – For the sophisticated whisky drinker that savours a dram
The Naked Grouse is a unique and expertly crafted, small batch blended Scotch whisky containing hand-blended world-renowned malts that combine to produce a sweet, rich and smooth taste. The exceptional blend was inspired by William Gloag of The Famous Grouse family and his pioneering discovery of sherry cask maturation. This innovative process, along with an enduring legacy of expertise, creates a stunning example of the blender’s art and results in a sophisticated dram with notes of cherry compote, spicy cinnamon and dark chocolate.
For a classic cocktail this Christmas, treat yourself to The Naked Grouse signature serve The Old Fashioned. Simply put a small heap of ice into the bottom of the glass then pour in the whisky, bitters and sugar syrup in any order. Stir vigorously for 20 seconds, before garnishing with orange zest. This serve is a simple combination of traditional ingredients resulting in a smooth and sophisticated drink with lots of taste.
The whisky is available in high end bars and retail outlets such as Sainsbury’s.
