Old Liquors Magazine » Whisky

The Chattanooga Whiskey Co. rewrote century-old laws with their Vote Whiskey campaign to be able to distill Whiskey in their hometown. Pre-Prohibition, Chattanooga, Tennessee, was once one of the largest Whiskey-distilling cities in the nation with more than 30 distilleries in Chattanooga’s downtown area from 1866–1915.  Although Prohibition was repealed in 1933, until 2009 only three counties allowed liquor distillation. Then in 2009, it became legal to distill spirits in 41 counties in Tennessee. But Hamilton County, where Chattanooga is situated, wasn’t one of the 41 counties included ..read more

Cigars + Spirits: Tips For Pairing
Old Liquors Magazine » Whisky
by Annie Grace Wilson
1y ago
Cigars and Whiskey may be the most traditional of cigar–spirit pairings, but there are so many cigars out there to enjoy and all of them pair differently with the many various spirits, wines, and beers from around the world. For many, finding those perfect pairings is a personal journey and an enjoyable one at that. Know Your Palate Know yourself. Your palate is your personal context for all of the advice you’ll receive here and elsewhere. Begin at the beginning. Do not pair a spirit you have never tried or do not enjoy alone. The same can be said for cigars. A particular cigar may pair really ..read more

This will depend on the kind of Scotch you have in front of you. For most drinkers, this education is a labor of love. Scotch is a Whisky – not a Whiskey. Scotch is a Whisky (they don’t spell it with an “e”) that is made only in Scotland and which is distilled from grain, generally malted barley. Usually, but not always, it will ..read more

The YouTube celebrity scene is quite the spectrum, ranging from sentient garbage pile to some truly life-saving innovators. Ralfy Mitchell and his infinity bottle concept, popularized on the YouTube platform, lies somewhere on that spectrum, depending on who it is that you ask. As the blend builds with each addition and further reconfigures, the infinity bottle’s flavors can change dramatically throughout the course of its eternal life So what is the infinity bottle, exactly? An infinity bottle, which also may be referred to as a “fractional,” “solera,” or “living” bottle,  is the amalg ..read more

The Speyside Whisky Trail, In Search of the Perfect Single Malt
Old Liquors Magazine » Whisky
by Bridget Halberstadt
1y ago
Colorful, rugged, misty, and slightly mysterious, wonderful Scotland beckons all connoisseurs to come and explore the birthplace of some of the world’s finest (and most collectible) single malt Scotch whiskies. My (Irish) father always joked that the Irish played a bad joke on the Scots when they introduced them to the Irish Bagpipes, but when Irish monks introduced the Scots to whisk(e)y back in the 15th century, they certainly did them a great favor which has been paying dividends ever since. Anyone who is even mildly interested in Scotland’s liquid gold owes it to themselves to come and see ..read more

On the day the Twin Towers fell, Michael Myers, a beauty and fashion photographer in New York City, was on the street near his home with his small children, trying desperately to shield them against the smoke that was filling the air and the screams that could be heard three blocks away. Soon after 9/11, Myers and his family escaped the city and traveled to Colorado, intending to stay with relatives for just a little while.   Source: www.distillery291.com They ended up falling in love with the place, so Myers shuttled back and forth to New York City for a few years, trying to keep his pho ..read more

Kaiyo: Taking the World’s Most Expensive Whisky Barrels to Sea
Old Liquors Magazine » Whisky

Japanese Whisky continues to sell out at record speed, with no sign of slowing down—that is, of course, until there may be no more left to sell. From disappearing off the shelf two hours after opening in carefully selected Japanese airport shops to bidding for $300,000 or more in auctions all over the world, we simply can’t get enough of this incomparable, perfected treat. We know the Hibikis and Yamazakis are famous for this already, but one more, albeit lesser-known Japanese Whisky that’s certainly no exception to this rule, is Kaiyo (“Ocean”); it simply has not sold out yet. And before ..read more

It’s Not Often You Find a Tome About Whisky That Reads Like a Travel Journal
Old Liquors Magazine » Whisky
by Rowena Marella-Daw

Delicate, reverent, meticulous—these characteristics encapsulate the essence of Japanese culture and are the impressions I gleaned from a recent sojourn in the Land of the Rising Sun. They also describe the latest book from award-winning whisky expert Dave Broom, The Way of Whisky. It is a delightful account of his journey around Japan by way of its distilleries, searching for answers as to why Japanese whisky is distinct from other whiskies of the world. It’s not often you find a tome about whisky that reads like a travel journal. Broom’s intimate insights, coupled with the inspiring photogra ..read more

Its first spirit run was in 1897, under the name Glen Moray Glenlivet Distillery Company. This came after the Elgin West Brewery occupied the premises for the previous 60 years making local ales. Ever since, with the exception of a few years, fine single malt ..read more
