About SIA Blended Scotch Whisky
The story of SIA Scotch Whisky is wildly different than your standard founder-had-a-vision-while-sipping-on-something fare. For starters, Carin Luna-Ostaseski is a first-generation Cuban American who didn't care much for Scotch in her mid 20s, when a friend organized a tasting. The event set her on a path of discovery that would have her sample hundreds of whiskies, studying the soul of the spirit.
As she started sharing her passion with friends, her love for Scotch grew. In 2012, she raised nearly $50,000 on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.com. She partnered with a Scottish blender and released SIA in 2013. SIA Whisky is a blend of Speyside, Highlands Lowlands and Islay malt and grain whiskies that's bottled at 86 proof, the main malt coming from Teaninich. Aged in a combination of refill and first-fill American oak ex-bourbon casks, it's a modern take on the spirit. SIA was designed to be "accessible, inviting, smooth and easy to drink."
SIA Blended Scotch Whisky soon started racking up awards that include a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2014. In 2016, the expression was awarded 96 points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge. Smooth, balanced, and complex, it's a modern ultra-premium whisky that manages to be approachable and affordable.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
