A journey into the world of Whisky, starting with the staples of the home of Whisky, Scotland, and moving into rare, unknown and oversea territories..
What started with bourbon (and coke, sorry) matured over time and the Ardbeg, Springbank, Benriach, Bladnoch, Caol Ila and more followed.
With storage units close to collapse, a recent comment by my wife; "No more drinking whisky" has led me further into the collectable world. Foraging online, specialist Whisky sites and now, an annual 'pilgrimage' to places north of the border.
Well it’s been a while since two individuals have enthused me so much about their craft but that’s just what Chris and Abbie, founders and owners of CooperKing Distillery in Yorkshire have just done.
A start up in every sense of the word (they actually built their distillery) Abbie and Chris have enthusiasm and passion by the bucket load and are possibly some of the nicest people you’d hope to meet too.
