It may surprise the hardened Scotch drinker to discover that some of the mostly highly praised whiskies in the world come from outside of whisky's traditional heartlands of Scotland and Ireland. Amrut and Penderyn must come in for special praise here, Japanese whiskies having their own section on this site. This is the place to shed your certainties and consider something new.
You don't get a lot of New Zealand whisky making it to the UK. The first That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottling from Willowbank distillery is also a closed distillery release, as the place shut up shop in 1997. A rare treat indeed.
