The term 'whisky' comes from the Gaelic 'uisge beatha' or ‘water of life’.
No other drink has such a distinctive character nor history and culture associated with it. Scotch Whisky, as it’s famously known, is Scotland’s leading export with 36 bottles shipped overseas every second - that’s approximately over 1 billion bottles every year!!
To keep up with global demand, Scotland boasts around 100 world class distilleries, about 40 of which are open to the public, and each has their own unique setting, story and distinctive tasting whisky. Most are situated against backdrops of some of the most beautiful scenery in the five main whisky producing regions in Scotland: the Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, Islay and Campbelltown.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a connoisseur, amateur, or simply have an interest in finding out more about Scotch Whisky, STGA can provide you with a guide with the appropriate level of knowledge.
