Collins Little Books released this handy pocket guide to the fast growing Irish Whiskey scene back in 2020.
It’s quite amazing how much of the information within it’s pages has already been superseded by the speed of unfolding events.
Brands that aren’t even mentioned – Ahascragh for one – are nearing completion of their own distillery & are winning awards with their sourced whiskey.
Meanwhile companies that are included have either changed hands, commissioned their distillery and/or released their long awaited whiskey portfolio to much acclaim.
In a refreshing aside the author doesn’t belittle sourced product over own release & places the growth of sourced brands in the historical context of independent bonders, blenders & bottlers adding to the expanding diversity & quality of Irish Whiskey as a whole.
A worthy little snapshot of the continued expansion of Irish Whiskey.
