Week 1: Scotch whisky

Since 2016 has just begun, there’s no better time to start drinking adventurously. So in the spirit (and beer, cider, sake and wine) of out-of-your-comfort-zone imbibing this blog is going to work its way through each week of The Year of Drinking Adventurously and showcase each beverage in order until the ball drops on 2017. This week: Scotch whisky. Here’s a slideshow of some dram fine Scottish eye candy to get this year started. (You can read along by ordering The Year of Drinking Adventurously.)

Today’s image takes us to Scotland and inside the Scotch whisky distillery, Cardhu. The Diageo-owned operation shows off its majestic array of pot stills as they crank out Cardhu’s fine malts. Cardhu’s distilling activities date back to 1824 when former whisky smuggler John Cumming went legit and launched the business. Cardhu produces some of the single malts that go into the Johnnie Walker blend. Cardhu offers visitors the official Johnnie Walker Experience.
