Visiting a distillery is a great place to get a quick eduction.  This  comprehensive whiskey distillery index has a few places that we have on our list to visit. We encourage you to visit your local distillery to find out how they started and what makes them a little different than some of the bigger distilleries. Craft Distilling has increased over the past five to 10 years. In America, there is a distillery in every state. Ireland has seen a triple digit growth rate for multiple years running. England has an increasing population of distilleries in the building process. Scottish distilleries are stable and reopen those that closed in the 70’s. All this provides for diversity of products for each of us to enjoy.

For those that we have visited, we will be adding more commentary as we go. [Give us a little time, we might have been drinking.]
