‘New-world’ whisky distilleries for World Whisky Day

18th May, 2017 by Annie Hayes

From Finland to New Zealand, SB is shining a spotlight on a selection of ‘new-world’ producers that are catalysing change in the global whisky category ahead of World Whisky Day on 20 May.

Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky is said to be South Africa’s “first and only” single-grain whisky

While new and old world wine regions are clearly defined, with lesser-known winemakers increasingly garnering the same respect as their established peers, the same cannot be said for the whisky category.

Outside the traditional Scotch, Irish and American identities – which for the most part are subject to tight regulations – whiskies tend to be stylistically indistinct and are often overlooked by the category’s devoted drinkers.

With this in mind, The Spirits Business has picked out a selection of deserving ‘new-world’ distilleries in celebration of innovative producers across the globe that are attempting to shaking up the sector.

Click through the following pages to discover our pick of top ‘new-world’ whisky distilleries ahead of World Whisky Day this coming weekend.
