The government had put a tax on Scotland’s malted barley and the people of Glasgow were raging. Malt Riot takes its name from the 1725 Malt Riots which started in Glasgow and spread throughout Scotland, and the inadvertent result of the protest lead to the start of the whisky industry as we know it today.
Malt Riot Vat No.6 is a blend of handpicked single malt whiskies from across Scotland with our Glasgow 1770 Single Malt at its heart. Notes of pears and apricots combine with sweet vanilla and toffee apples leading to a lightly spicy finish.
Drink Malt Riot however you prefer to consume your whiskies, but we recommend trying it neat or mixed with ginger ale over ice or as part of a whisky sour cocktail.
In the spirit of the 1725 Malt Riots, we encourage you to Stand Up For The Good Stuff.
