Whisky is now made all around the world, from Bourbon County, Kentucky all the way down to the island of Tasmania off Australia’s Southern tip. Furthermore, the range of styles made all over the globe has never been more diverse. There are corn and wheat whiskies made across the US, rye whiskey made in the Netherlands, single malts produced in Sweden, grain whiskies distilled in Ireland and innovative blended malts created in Japan – amongst many, many more. All of these countries paint an ever more complex picture of the world of whisky, and are well worth exploring.
