In the Highlands of Scotland, whisky was called usquebaugh or the ‘water of life’ and rightly so. Five generations of the Grant family have spent time perfecting these golden drops of mellowness. Drop by drop, their passion has been bottled in 8 labels and has travelled to over 180 countries, keeping the Grant’s flag flying high.
The beauty of Grant’s is, it tastes best when shared. Because memories are made better together. So the next glass you raise, make sure you stand together while clinking.
And while we’re at it, here’s another piece of advice: don’t listen to anyone who tells you how to have your whisky. With Grant’s, you drink it your way. To help you, here are a few ways to get you started:
G&G : An all-time favourite mix of Grant’s and ginger ale on ice with a dash of lime.
Old Fashioned : Familiar to all whisky lovers, this has Grant’s with sugar syrup and angostura bitters garnished with an orange peel.
Grapple : As the name suggests, a fruitilicious combination of Grant’s whisky, fresh apple juice, lime with a hint of cinnamon.
Rusty Nail : Grant’s and Drambuie on ice with a peel of lemon make this classic cocktail.
