Great King Street is a mission, mission dedicated to reviving interest in one style of whisky only: Blended Scotch Whisky. This is the style of Scotch whisky that combines flavourful single malt whiskies with delicate, elegant single grain whiskies. Well-made Blended Scotch Whiskies have an elegance and approachability that make them a joy to drink. They are far versatile than other styles of whisky equally enjoyable drunk on their own or with ice, soda water, or in cocktails.
Five key things set apart our approach to making Great King Street:
1. Great Grain. We use the very highest quality single grain Scotch whiskies which are the foundation of good Blended Scotch. All are aged in “first fill” American oak barrels, which makes the grain whisky much richer and sweeter on the palate.
2. More Malt. We use a higher proportion of malt whisky than most other Blends. Artist’s Blend consists of almost 50% malt whisky. This provides more character and complexity.
3. Better Oak. Every cask of whisky used to make Artist’s Blend is of the highest quality: first-fill American oak casks, first-fill European oak ex-Sherry butts and new heavily-toasted French oak.
4. Bottled Naturally. Artist’s Blend is bottled at its natural colour and without chill filtration. This leaves the whisky full of its natural complexity and mouthfeel.
5. Traditional Strength. We bottle Artist’s Blend at 43% alcohol by volume, a strength traditionally used in Scotland many years ago.
By applying the same skill, techniques and philosophy that we use for the Compass Box Signature Range of whiskies, Great King Street offers a style and approach to Blended Scotch that has not existed before. Great King Street is a new and compelling alternative for both whisky enthusiasts who ordinarily drink only malt whiskies, and for whisky novices. It is bottled at a natural colour and without chill-filtering. We call whiskies made with this approach ‘craft blends’.
