15 May Grant’s Family Reserve
Grant’s Family Reserve (an award-winning malt) is a no fuss and traditional gift that Dad is sure to enjoy this Father’s Day. A classic drink which won’t fail to deliver simple and enjoyable tasting notes.
Created by William Grant in 1898 this blend is still thriving today, five generations later! The Grant family motto is ‘Stand Fast’, and as this family run business is still going strong I couldn’t think of a better motto.
Grant’s say –
‘Grant’s Master Blender, Brian Kinsman, blends around 25 of the finest single malt and grain Scotch whiskies to make Grant’s Family Reserve. The basis for the blend is our widely acclaimed Girvan grain whisky. Vacuum distilled at a lower temperature to make it a lighter and more delicate spirit it is then aged in oak to give it a deeper sweeter soft fruit flavour creating the perfect foundation.’
This Whiskey is best served over ice, maybe with the addition of a little water – whatever your personal preference is. However, after personally sampling one of the best cocktails I have ever tasted, I really must recommend the Grant’s Espresso Martini Whiskey Cocktail – absolutely divine! Simply add 50ml Grant’s Family Reserve, 1 shot of espresso and 5ml Tia Maria/Kahula to a shaker with ice. Once shook, strain into a glass and enjoy!
With tasting notes of malted barley, toffee and caramel with vanilla fudge and supple oak, Grant’s Family Reserve is a clean and light whiskey. This would make a great gift for those on a smaller budget, as it’s a fine tasting Whiskey for such a small price!
Grant’s Family Reserve has a RRP of £17.45, and is available from any major retailers, including Master of Malt.
