The magical world of whisky (uisce beatha in Gaelic) boasts a rich legacy: born under the shamrock, the Emerald Isle whiskey and Scotch Malt won over the world from the Highlands, home of the tartan. It crossed the seas on the Scots and Irishmen's route to the New World. The French Monarchy bestowed the Seal of the Bourbons on American whiskey in Louisville, hence its name in Kentucky. And today, many know of the quality of Japanese whisky, inherited from Scottish knowledge... and proudly celebrating 90 years!
