Scottish Whisky Brand Grant’s Releases Summer Orange Edition

Grant’s recently announced the launch of its first-ever flavored expression, Summer Orange. The new expression, featuring natural orange flavors and Sicilian orange extract, was designed with cocktails in mind.

In its announcement statement, Grant’s distillers noted they were seeking an offering that embodies the taste of summer in a glass. They recommend Summer Orange be served with soda or lemonade, a slice of orange, and loads of ice.

Daniel Dyer, Grant’s global brand ambassador, said, “Whisky and orange is a fantastic combination made for summer evenings … people to get together with their crew to shoot the breeze and we came up with Summer Orange for those magical moments with friends as the sun lowers and the warm air covers you like a blanket.”

Since 1887, William Grant has been making whisky to a unique formula shared over five generations. They age whisky in a third barrel which imparts what’s described as a distinctive flavor that sets Grant’s Triple Wood apart.

Today, William Grant & Sons owns Scotch whisky brands Glenfiddich, The Balvenie range of handcrafted single malts, Grant’s, as well as other spirits brands such as Monkey Shoulder, Hendrick’s gin, Sailor Jerry spiced rum, Tullamore D.E.W. Irish whiskey and Drambuie Scotch Liqueur.
