Morris Signature Malt Whisky is made from malted barley, water, and yeast. The barley is milled and mixed with hot water to create sweet wort, which is then fermented to produce wash. The wash is distilled twice in copper pot stills to create a new make spirit, which is aged for a minimum of three years in oak casks. After aging, the whisky is blended and bottled, ensuring consistent quality in every bottle.

About The Brand And Its History
With its history dating back to 1859, the Morris family winery has earned a reputation as one of the world's most renowned fortified wine producers. Morris whisky stands out for its exceptional and distinctive flavor, which is achieved through exclusive access to fortified wine barrels for finishing the whisky. These barrels have previously held some of the world's most highly acclaimed fortified wines, adding depth and complexity to the whisky's flavor profile.
In 2016, the Morris distillery was established around the original copper still, which was built in the 1930s and installed at the Morris winery back in 1941. This allows Morris to continue its legacy of crafting exceptional spirits using traditional techniques and equipment.
