“Whisky is liquid sunshine.”
-George Bernard Shaw
Kilts… Haggis… Bagpipes… all of these things are globally known as signs of one particular country, and that country is of course Scotland. However, there is one export that Scotland is known for above all others and that is… whisky!
Scotland is so well known for its whisky that ‘Scotch’ is a universal term for the bewitching elixir, and nowhere else in the world can claim a whisky making heritage as strong as Scotland’s.
With such a history, it seems logical that on your next adventure to Scotland you will want to try some of them. In this blog we thought that we would highlight some of the best distilleries where you can find a glass… or even a bottle of sunshine!
