This new, fully updated, and interactive edition of The World Atlas of Whisky provides an in-depth, comprehensive journey through the history, process, distilleries and expressions of world whiskies.
Award-winning author and whisky expert Dave Broom explores over 200 distilleries and examines over 750 expressions.

There are interactive tasting notes on single malts from Aberfeldy to Yoichi (and coverage of the best of the blends). Six specially created 'Flavour Camps' plot whiskies by style on an interactive Flavour Map and allow readers to identify new whiskies from around the world to try.
This extensively updated and extended edition features new material on burgeoning areas, including detailed coverage of many recently opened US craft distilleries and new distilleries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
With over 200 beautiful colour photographs, 28 colour maps locating distilleries and whisky-related sites, and 680 interactive tasting notes, this is a stylish celebration of the heritage, romance, craftsmanship and versatility of whisky.
