Naked Malt Whisky is confident, free, and comfortable in its naked state. Are you?
Whether you love whisky or are whisky-curious, when you’re ready to drop the act and live in the moment—when you’re ready to #LiveNaked—you’re ready for Naked Malt Blended Malt Scotch Whisky. Its new take on a traditional favourite sends convention packing and encourages free-thinkers, risk-takers, and joy-makers to live in the moment and enjoy life for its own sake.
Naked Malt is an award-winning, contemporary, premium blended malt whisky that is pushing boundaries with what it doesn’t bring to the table—pretention, rules or stereotypes. Instead, it pushes the possibility of whisky enjoyment with a unique blend of the world’s finest malts, carefully chosen and meticulously blended for a fresh and interest-piquing flavour. But that is only the beginning.
The blend is extra-matured in “naked” first fill Oloroso sherry casks that have been selected among thousands to bring the right strength and character to Naked Malt. The casks are “naked” because they’ve never held whisky before, and the minimum six months maturation time gives the Oloroso sherry seasoning a chance to add a layer of rich and lively fruity flavour to the whisky. The result is an honest, free flavour that entices anyone open to new experience for the sake of it. Even Naked Malt’s packaging is liberated, with sleek and simple raised glass labelling that lets the quality shine through.
Naked Malt isn’t tied to conventional rules. Instead, it invites savvy sippers to try it their own way—on the rocks, neat or in a cocktail. The whole point is to avoid feeling restricted by the usual whisky dos and don’ts, so Naked Malt has broken free with a signature serve line of sours that welcomes surprising flavours that live outside of the whisky-typical box.
To understand the Naked Sour, one must first understand the conventional sour, a common and infinitely adaptable beverage that is routinely adjusted to reflect local tastes or ingredients. The concept can be expanded to use different fruits, juices, and flavour profiles, so long as it contains some essential building blocks. If a traditional sour’s formula is spirit + citrus + sugar = sour, the secret to success with Naked Malt’s Sour Strategy is to keep it simple: Naked Malt + citrus + sugar = Naked Sour.
More than 20 recipe ideas offer up Naked Sours that are crisp and refreshing, festive and punchy, or rich and decadent. A must-try is Naked Malt + grapefruit + lime + sugar = Naked Grapefruit sour, which will knock the socks off any sour connoisseur or delight the most enthusiastic newbie. Your passion, your choice.
Take a bold step off the beaten track. Don’t wait till the weekend… the time is NOW. Join the Naked Malt movement and #LiveNaked.
