R For Russian Whisky

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 R for Russian Whisky.

It was illegal to produce whisky in Russia up to 2015.

A growing demand for imported whisky may have been a factor in changing the law.

Imported whisky like this Scotch specifically branded for the Russian market.

The proposed home made stuff looks a bit more meaty.

Although we will have to wait a little longer for the Stoli Whisky to mature fully before it’s impending release.
