Why Naked I hear you say?
Convention said Blended Malt matured and got its flavour from pre-used Bourbon casks. This got us thinking, what if instead we used first-fill sherry casks to add another layer of rich and fruity flavour to our unique blend of single malts? These are casks that have never held whisky, Naked Casks we call them. This liberating leap into the unknown didn’t just work, it was a joyful exuberance of flavour, that changed the possibilities of whisky enjoyment!
In fact from this sprung a whole ‘Live Naked’ ethos, celebrating freedom; that liberating moment of release when you drop the act and can get back to the real you, the Naked you. Tie off, bra off, laptop shut!
Naked Grouse gives you the freedom to enjoy things your way. It’s best for those liberating moments when only a blended malt will do.
Live differently… Live Naked!
Win your very own
A Naked experience like no other…
A personalised escape in Scotland which includes a stay in a
Naked pod with locally sourced meals, drinks and tailored activities — creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Sounds unbelievable? Well, it’s yours to win!
