Ringing in the new year with a great Whisky Roundtable, this month’s hosts, Mike, Mike & Dan from Whisky Party have asked an excellent and wide-reaching question about the state of American Whiskey and its influence on the greater whisky world. It’s an exciting time for American distillers so this is sure to be an interesting discussion.
Here’s the question:
The American whisk(e)y industry is in a so-called ‘experimental’ period, in which new microdistilleries are offering a multitude of less traditional and less regulated variations on single malt and traditional American whiskey styles. How long do you predict this trend will continue, and what will be the ultimate impact on the American and/or global whisk(e)y industry?
…and here are our responses.
