Famous Grouse Adds Sherry Cask Finish

Famous Grouse Sherry Cask Finish

The Famous Grouse has added a Sherry Cask Finish whisky to its portfolio. To create the Scotch, Speyside malts were matured in Sherry-seasoned, European oak casks.

“This new, revived blend is finished in Sherry casks and butts seasoned in the region of Jerez, Spain,” said Sanele Gwala, global senior brand manager at The Famous Grouse. “The aim was to create a blend that is slightly sweeter but still in keeping with the smooth and distinct DNA of classic Grouse.

“Once the blend is in its final stages of maturation, which involves the meticulous combination of hand selected malt and grain whiskies, The Famous Grouse master blender does not stop there; the full blend is married in ex-Sherry casks to further enhance their sweet, rich, and smooth characters. The Sherry Cask Finish is a decadent blend of festive flavours including chocolate, almonds, dried fruits, and sweet spices.”

The brand recommends serving the whisky in a highball glass with soda water and an orange wedge.

The packaging pays tribute to the Spanish female capercaillie bird, part of the grouse family. This particular bird was chosen for its link to the product’s Spanish Sherry heritage, as well as its orange and red plumage.

The Famous Grouse Sherry Cask Finish is priced at $26 and available in 19 global markets. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.

In March, the Famous Grouse released The Famous One, a sweeter rendition of their classic whisky blend.
