September is Bourbon Heritage Month, and while Bourbon can be made anywhere in the U.S., Kentucky is known as “the State of Bourbon.” Bourbon makers generate millions of dollars annually for the state’s economy, and their taxes help pay for local services and public education. The unprecedented growth of the industry hasn’t come without its growing pains, though…and we’ll look at some of the issues facing the “State of Bourbon” with Janet Patton of the Lexington Herald-Leader. In the news, Maker’s Mark has lost two of its top leaders as Denny Potter and Jane Bowie leave for a new venture, while Blue Run Spirits is planning a new $51 million distillery. We’ll have all of the week’s whisky news, tasting notes, and look at what may be the world’s toughest whiskey trail to visit.

Whisky, or “whiskey” if you prefer, is a multinational, billion-dollar industry spanning the globe; it is made from New York to Tasmania. Although whisky is an umbrella term that includes Bourbon and Irish, it is most synonymous with Scotch. It is estimated that more Scotch is sold in France in a month than Cognac in a year.
But, how did an obscure drink from the far reaches of northwest Europe become a worldwide phenomenon? That’s the first question asked in this book. Most decent bars and stores have a wide range of Scotches, but what do their individual names mean? A large proportion of their names derive from farm names, which is understandable since whisky was mostly an agricultural by-product.
The names, in turn, reflect the various languages historically spoken across Scotland. Whisky gives us a glimpse into the world of our ancestors and allows us to see that world through their eyes. That’s the essence of the Language of Whisky. This book also strips away the veneer of self-proclaimed expert-speak and brings whisky back to where it belongs: hearth, home, and, of course, good company.
The book introduces whiskies from around the world. Many of the whiskies presented are rare. The book presents producers of whiskies from Ireland, Japan, Scotland, and the USA. It also shared rare selections from India and Taiwan. If you are interested in rare whiskies from around the world, this is a must-have book in your library.
