Scotland has achieved something that very few if any other countries can claim, and that is becoming almost completely synonymous with a product, in this case, whisky. Because of this the other whisky producing nations are often forgotten or overlooked. Many do not realise that there are now over 20 countries making Single Malt Whisky, arguably with the same talent and passion as the Scots.
The trend towards world whiskies is growing more and more with countries like Japan, Taiwan and India receiving multiple awards and accolades. Fascinating to explore the effect of different climates and traditions, these whiskies should be tried by all.
