The Spirit of Adventure.

The art of turning malt into liquid gold is something most Master Distillers would say is part science and part magic. No matter how one manipulates the variables in whisky making, there is almost always an element of unpredictability and surprise.

Our brand name, FiftySix Degrees, is a homage to the Scottish Highlands where this fine whisky is distilled. Born from the legacy of finely crafted whiskies that have been fine-tuned to perfection, FiftySix Degrees was made to befit the discerning whisky aficionado. Aged in hand picked bourbon and sherry oak casks, FiftySix Degrees boasts a balanced aroma of soft slightly citrus top notes and a rich malty heart.


Tasting Notes


The Nose

Attractive and soft, with very slight citrus top notes, a richly malty heart with some fudge, and is slightly syrupy with good balance.


The Palate

Fresh and creamy, nicely vibrant without prickle with a pleasant mouth-coating fruitiness developing with time.


The Finish

Soft and balanced, with a mature
and smooth finish.
