Blended Scotch Whisky
Harleston Green was conceived by Daniel Undhammer, one of the founders of Edgewater Spirits, after several years focusing on Scotch Whisky, first for Seagram’s UK and then for Pernod Ricard UK & Chivas Brothers International. He sought to create a blended Scotch that didn’t compromise on character, would appeal to bartenders in both flavor-profile and pricing, and would exceed expectations whether enjoyed neat or mixed in cocktails. The resulting whisky answers this call with a unique DNA composed with a very high percentage of single malt whiskies in the blend, creating a superior blended Scotch Whisky with a rich aroma and a long, balanced finish.
The name Harleston Green pays homage to the first golf club in America, located in Charleston, South Carolina, and established in 1786. It was here that the game of golf and its inextricable connection to Scotch whisky were first introduced to the United States.
Harleston Green is blended from single malts aged 3–5 years from the Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, and Campbeltown, and grain whiskies also aged 3–5 years. Single malts compose 30% of the blend—much higher a percentage than normally found in blended Scotch whiskies. Oaky with only a touch of smoke, this full-bodied blend is designed to work equally well as a cocktailing component or sipping Scotch. A nose of apricots and heather underlined with toffee and orange zest give way to a palate of mulling spices, almond, and burnt orange, finishing with a lingering note of cooked malt. 40% ABV
