Fine Scotch blended whisky with beautiful malty tones,
Grand Macnish Original in continuous production since its birth in 1863, is one of the oldest blended scotches still in the market today. It was the brainchild of Glasgow merchant, Robert McNish, who had a vision to create a lighter, smoother scotch whisky compared to the harsher whiskies of the day.Our Master Blender strives to continue Robert’s proud heritage maintaining Grand Macnish’s unique presentation and distinctive taste.
Over 150 years ago Robert McNish set out to produce his own blend. Grand Macnish became the fine Scotch Whisky that it is today because of his belief, being a hard-headed Scot, he set about concocting a lighter whisky which would have a distinctive appearance.After much sampling, a recipe was found using over 40 single whiskies. The percentage of each used varied according to weight, flavor and aroma, the resultant whisky being much lighter than straight malt, although retaining the exquisite flavor of the finest Highland Whiskies.
