World Whisky Day is fast approaching on Saturday the 19th May 2018.
As part of the build up I’m featuring a series of blogs – both old and new – over the next month focusing on a country from each letter of the alphabet – if possible – that makes whisky.
Today is L for Luxembourg Whisky.
I did visit Luxembourg – once – and missed a trick.
You see it has one of the lowest alcohol tax rates in Europe – and I’d already bought my baggage allowance worth of whisky in neighbouring Germany.
So here I am – visiting the highest point in Luxembourg (a nondescript little spot by the name of Kneiff at 560m, at least Buurgplaatz has a landmark building at 559m) – when I pop into a local garage for supplies.
Low and behold – a wide variety of European whiskies at affordable prices!
And then I find out Luxembourg has a farm based whisky distillery!
Not only that – they distill rye!
How did I miss that?
