Grant’s Triple Wood Blended Whisky makes summer sippin a cinch
For some, scotch isn’t always thought of as the perfect summer sip, however with notes of ripe pear and summer fruits, vanilla sweetness, and light floral fragrances, Grant’s Blended Triple Wood Scotch Whisky is here to change that narrative.
Grant’s Triple Wood is aged in three different types of wood: Virgin Oak cask provides spicy robustness, American Oak lends subtle vanilla smoothness, and Bourbon refill offers brown sugar sweetness, resulting in a smoother, richer, mellower tasting whisky with a complex, clean note of summer fruits balanced with vanilla sweetness, malty and light floral fragrances, and notes of summer fruits with a touch of floral.
Nose: Complex, clean with notes of ripe pear and summer fruits.
Taste: Balances vanilla sweetness with malty and light floral fragrances.
Finish: Long and sweet with a subtle hint of smoke.
“Grant’s values togetherness, and there is no better way to celebrate the summer than coming together with your pals over a dram or cocktail featuring Grant’s Triple Wood,” comments Daniel Dyer, Global Brand Ambassador, Grant’s Whisky.
Growing up in Aberlour on the North East of Scotland, Daniel Dyer has over ten years’ experience within the whisky industry. After working at a number of distilleries across Scotland, Danny went on to work in a range of bars and exclusive clubs across Edinburgh, where he mastered his trade as a bartender and a true ambassador of whisky. Danny then entered the ‘Greatest Job Interview in the World’– a competition by Grant’s to find their latest Global Brand Ambassador. With over 5,000 applicants from around the world, Danny travelled the globe, put his wealth of experience within the industry to the test and, after a gruelling interview, won the accolade becoming Grant’s new Global Brand Ambassador.
Here are some of Daniel’s recommended summer cocktail recipes that are easy to make at home, or at your next gathering with friends.
