The Feathery Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Aside from whisky, there may be no other tradition as sacred to Scottish culture as golf. In the game’s early days, balls were hand-crafted with goose feathers (as many as could fit in a gentleman’s top hat), tar and bird skin, creating a perfectly rounded ball that was more streamlined and effective than the previously used leather balls. The downside, however, was that the new balls — appropriately dubbed “featheries” — were extremely time-consuming and costly to produce. As such, two spotters were required on the course at all times to ensure the featheries weren’t lost.
The Feathery Blended Malt Scotch Whisky pays homage to the traditional Scottish craftsmanship that went into making each feathery ball. The whisky is produced by blending three Highland single malts — Tamdhu, Glengoyne and Glendronach — which have been matured 8-10 years in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks.
