    Get festive with Tullamore D.E.W, Monkey Shoulder and Hendrick’s Gin

    Monkey Shoulder is the world’s first 100% malt whisky made for mixing.

    Using batches from just 27 casks, Monkey Shoulder is created by combining single malts from three of Speyside’s finest distilleries. Known for breaking conventional whisky rules and traditions, Monkey Shoulder puts the fun back into whisky drinking.

    Famed for its versatility, the smooth and rich taste has hints of mellow vanilla – a flavour that works well with mixers and when included in cocktails.

    Pick up the festive Monkey Shoulder gift box for R369, which makes a pretty cool gift for a loved one, but an even better gift from you, to you.
