Adorns each bottle deer head is taken from the coat of arms of the Mackenzie. The story goes that in 1263 a distant ancestor Mackenzie saved on the hunt of King Alexander III, killing a deer with one arrow.

As a result, whiskey gets an excellent balance of flavors: original fresh fruit complemented by notes of sweet vanilla and coconut from American barrels of bourbon and aromatic spices with hints of dried fruit from the European red oak sherry.
