“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whisky is barely enough,” Mark Twain once famously said. Most whisky connoisseurs would agree. Heck, even we do.
And while enjoying your favourite booze is one thing, understanding where they come from is another — especially if you’re splurging $14,500 on a shot of rare whisky. Lest you end up like wealthy Chinese author Zhang Wei, who decided to buy the world’s most expensive shot of whisky at Devil’s Place bar in Switzerland. And as you can guess, that didn’t turn out well.
So yes, we’re definitely an advocate for enjoying your glass of liquid sunshine right at the source — namely at the distilleries of some of the best whiskies or scotches around the globe, depending on where in the world they came from. This way, not only will you get a behind the scenes look at your favourite whiskies, you will also gain a deeper appreciation for the spirit.
