SIA (pronounced “SEE-a”) is a new, fresh and exciting Scotch Whisky created specifically to appeal to a modern palate. The whisky was crowd-funded two-years ago on Kickstarter.com by a Hispanic woman in California named Carin Luna-Ostaseski, after years of searching for a way to introduce her friends to Scotch whisky and challenge the idea that scotch is “your grandfather’s drink”.
The name SIA means “six” in Scottish Gaelic, which happens to be the Carin's favorite number. SIA is distilled in Scotland and matured, blended and bottled by third-generation crafters Hunter Laing & Co., Ltd. from a perfectly balanced blend of Speyside, Highlands and Islay malts.
Color: The striking amber color of clover honey,
Nose: SIA awakens the nose with citrus and spice
Taste: Citrus and spice with a hint of smoky vanilla, hazelnut and toffee
Finish: long, smooth and refreshing.
