If you knew my dad , he always had a drink with my uncles. Anytime they would come to the house, he always had his bar stocked with everything and anything. Some days we just need a drink, having a hard day and a way my dad would unwind was have a shot. His favorite was whisky he and my uncle would always, have a drink together no matter who's house. That was a tradition that they always had. Until they both passed away.

While searching for different kinds of mixes I came upon SIA, a Scotch Whisky, two things my dad loved to drink. He would have loved this and so would my Uncle Teddy, those two alway had a drink together.

SIA is distilled in Scotland and matured, blended and bottled by third-generation crafters Douglas Laing & Co., Ltd. from an balanced blend of Speyside, Highlands and Islay malts. SIA is imported by Spirit Imports, Inc. SIA is 43% Alcohol by Volume/86 Proof. As many people have inquired, the name SIA means “six” in Scottish Gaelic, which happens to be the founder’s favorite number.

What awesome its all done in Scotland, home to our grandfather or should I say a great one. The story of how this began is kind of interesting; he became an avid student of scotch and the beverage industry; he went on to become a bartender while getting a lot of doors slammed in his face. He would conduct many tasting tests with his hundreds and single malts. He would use his friends to do the taste tests. Imagine all of the friends having to do the taste test.



When conceptualizing the blend, I conducted blind tastings of hundreds of different single malts, researched distillery methods and shared early blends with Scotch Whisky virgins and enthusiasts alike. Sometimes work looks more like play!  And this is the finished product. It smells excellent and tastes smooth.

The striking amber color of clover honey, SIA awakens the nose with citrus and spice and opens the palate with a hint of smoky vanilla. The finish is long, smooth and refreshing with hints of hazelnut and toffee. The taste is something different but has blended flavors give the taste of toffee and hazelnut.
