Lot number: 065-0729

The Knot is one of several well-known brands of spirits produced by William Grant & Sons USA, the American subsidiary of William Grant & Sons, Ltd. Its Gaelic labeling and embossing and prominent Celtic knots (hence the name) call out its Irish origin (Bailieboro, Co. Cavan). But the word whiskey is nowhere to be seen. In fact, The Knot is a spirit that blends a proprietary recipe of spices with Irish whiskey. Some have likened it to Southern Comfort.

The rear label reads: "By cracking this seal of The Knot you accept that drinking is never to be taken lightly and promise to act in a responsible fashion -- not like some blithering idiot. You promise to drink The Knot straight up in a proper shot glass, rather than mixing it in some sort of novelty, tiny umbrella, fruit fiasco. And finally, you vow that you will never drink to anything that you are not prepared to go through with. If, in any way, you are not willing to abide by these conditions, by all means, please refrain from opening this bottle."

50% ABV / 100° PROOF / 75cl
