Other Whisky information on Planet Whiskies

On this site now I am putting together a full list of worldwide whiskies from distilleries throughout the world where you can buy your favourite dram. All the Scottish Blended whiskies have been completed and you will find them on Scottish Blended Whisky pages. There are well over 100 blends on these pages and you are sure to find the Scottish Blend that you are looking for. I have just started to price the Scottish Single Malts and I hope these malts will be done over the next few weeks. With over 1500 malts going to be priced and listed on this site you can imagine the task involved, but one worth doing for the readers of this site and one that will bring much more interaction about each of the whiskies than a lot of other whisky site who just put a price on the bottle with a link to buy. You can also see now a large number of Scottish Grain Whiskies and I have been receiving so many email world-wide saying that they did not know there was so many to choose from. There are around 100 American Bourbons, American Corn Whiskies and American Tennessee Whiskies to view and buy if you wish. I also plan in the near future to include a section where you can buy all your whisky glassware. This section will be appearing over the next few weeks so please remember to visit back soon to see what has been updated.

Old Course Single Malt Scottish WhiskyBlended and Grain whiskies are written about in detail on this site. As I am Scottish myself I know a lot of the brands in Scotland, but this website is about all the different types of whisky that are available around the world and I will be writing about whiskies that are Irish, Welsh, Australian, American, Canadian and of course Japanese which is up and coming and gaining large recognition within the industry. As there are a few spellings of whisky around the world, there will only be one that I will use on this website. So whiskey the local name for this product in some countries will not be used even when I am describing their products. A few countries do spell whisky the Scottish way such as Japanese, Canadian and Indian, with the last two because of being involved with the British Empire. Japanese whisky is spelt the Scottish way because the first person to distil whisky learned the trade in Scotland.

It is important to mentions that on this website I will be writing about all the distilleries in the world. But large parts of this website will be about the Scottish Whisky industry and the famous distilleries that are present like The Glenrothes Distillery, Glengoyne Distillery, Isle of Jura distilleries, Highland Park Distillery on Orkney, Glenmorangie Distillery and of course the Ardbeg Distillery. All these distilleries can be read about in the Latest News Section on this website where you will find out about all the latest news in the whisky industry, but more Scottish Whisky Distilleries can be read about on the Scottish Whisky Distilleries pages on this site. Some of the distilleries do not have a great deal of information relating to them as they have been closed or dismantled over the years, but this website still writes about their history whenever possible and this can bring the readers of this site even more knowledge of the Scottish Whisky industry.
