The "her" in       Her Whisky Love

I'm still here!  As some of you may have realized I have been working with Bacardi and helping their 5 single malts gain a foothold in the USA over the past year. This has not allowed me to write as much as I would like but I am still visiting new distilleries all the time. Slowly but surely I will get them up here. I will always have and be her whisky love so please stay tuned! Still writing & posting when I can..

Thanks for bearing with me and in the meantime you can still find me on Instagram @herwhiskylove

Tomintoul. As most of you are probably like me with the Scottish dialects; I had trouble with this one. I was told by my lovely tour guide, Tom, who is also the distillery manager, that there is really only one true way to remember the pronunciation for this distillery...

Benromach. This is the one and only Gordon MacPhail Bottling Companies only distillery. The purchase went through to the family in 1993 and they planned to make a spirit that was spicy with fruit flavors. The company Gordon and MacPhail has been around since the early...

If this is the case, please feel free to write to me directly on the "Contact Me" page. I would love to hear from you and meet a fellow whisky lover. Thanks for taking part in my whisky education!
