GLASGOW MALT RIOT – Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Malt Riot tells the tale of the people of Glasgow, who came together as one to stand up for what they believed in. It’s the year 1725 and the government attempt to impose a tax on Scotland’s malted barley. The Scots, foreseeing an increase in the cost of whisky, beer and other daily essentials, rise up in opposition. In Glasgow, malt stores are barricaded and the devilish excise men are chased from the city. The home of the local Member of Parliament, and former tax collector, is destroyed.
In a bizarre twist of fate, the M.P. is compensated for the damage and uses the money to purchase the islands of Islay and Jura. He encourages local farmers to seed surplus barley and thus igniting the legal production of single malt Scotch whisky on the islands and across the nation.
Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Vat No.6 is a selection of handpicked single malts from across Scotland with Glasgow 1770 Single Malt at it’s heart.
On the nose, freshly planed oak and sweet vanilla slices with hints of floral hyacinth. On the palate, toffee apples leading to a mix of dry spices and caramelised pineapple. A light and smooth finish with ripples of milk chocolate fruit and nut.
Combine with ginger ale over ice for a long refreshing drink or try something more adventurous and create an unbeatable Whisky Sour.
