For too long, American whiskey has been sidelined at Whisky and Alement. With a heavy focus on single malt whisky, bourbon can often be viewed as an inferior product of large sweetness and little variety. But there’s a change in the air. American whiskey production is growing at a rapid rate and it’s quality is fast increasing. In late 2013, the American whiskey market drew the eyes of high profile whisky reviewers such as Jim Murray who famously stated that “Generally speaking, bourbon… has overtaken Scotch.”
For this tasting, we are extremely pleased to be hosting Australian importer and distributor, Murray Robinson who will open our eyes to three American distilleries which are today experimenting with unique production and maturation. These distilleries have hit the world stage, with award winning whisky of every kind including Bourbon whiskey, Single Malt whisky and Grain whiskey. This is an opportunity to taste, compare and ask big questions about what is really happening in the American whiskey market today.
