OK, you can never know too much about whisk(e)y.

Now if you are confused as to why we have the dual spelling, there is a reason for this. In America, Japan and Ireland it is spelled Whiskey. In Canada and Scotland is spelled Whisky.

Understanding Whisk(e)y and distilling is a life journey…and a great road to travel with a companion with an appreciation for a tasting adventure.

Here are a couple of  books worth a look.

  • Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2015
  • Whisk(e)y Distilled – A populist guide to the water of life by Heather Greene

Murray’s book is an excellent reference to have on hand. Deep with distilleries and selection along with a thoughtful introduction on how to properly sample it. He is NOT a fan of placing a cube in the glass, preferring it neat and warmed to the hand.

Heather Greene is a spirits sommelier and does an excellent job of taking you from farm to glass. It is a great tour, told in a great conversational style and she clearly knows what she is talking about. The actual process can be difficult to get your head around and she does an excellent job  explaining this.
