10 Scotch Whisky Fun Facts

thewhiskylady - 2017-07-18

When reading whisky books or visiting distilleries, I noticed that one of the parts I liked the most was the “fun facts” section… Yeap, I have more fun being told Frank Sinatra was buried with a bottle of whiskey than learning Triumph barley was only used between 1980 and 1985 (true story though)… And I do believe I’m not the only one around here! ūüėÄ …

Whisky Tourism Could Be Better, Smarter, Stronger

thewhiskylady - 2017-05-16

Here it is:¬†during my latest Scottish visit, I realised – once again – that there’s still a very long way to go before visitors can get the most out of their distillery tours. I’m not going into some name-dropping/public shaming here (and anyway, if you follow me on social media, you’ll probably figure out which distillery made me go :/), that’s really not the point …
