Blogging on Whisky (and other things)

Hi there,

There are quite a few very knowledgeable people blogging about Whisky, Gin and other spirits, and I’m going to try my hand at it as well, it won’t be all whisky I’ll be writing about other spirits, wines, beers, cocktails and general trends in the wonderful world of Alcohol.


I figure I’ll start with what I’ve been drinking lately; It’s been a wonderful new distillery called Eden Mill in St Andrews in Scotland just north of Edinburgh

 
 

I am really impressed with what this little Distillery has put out and the amazing quality of the spirit, it’s youthful for sure, but with 1st fill casks to really compliment the whisky it’s a fantastic dram. I was lucky enough to nab one of the SMWS bottlings of this. I can’t wait to see what the official bottling is like and am eagerly awaiting it here in New Zealand and I will be looking to get some into the Scotchbox in a later shipment.

They have a fantastic array of Gin’s and Beer too and really look as if they want to do the full package on offer. Having started off in 2012 and relying on a very ‘hands-on’ style of brewing and distillation they’re getting those fun little quirks that can’t be replicated in a larger operation.


That will be all for today, I plan on putting more blogs up as I write them.

All the best

Gordon
