Scotland has claimed single malt whiskey for years. But the spirit is now being manufactured all over the world, including the United States, which has its own thriving industry. Can Scotland maintain its supremacy in the face of ever greater competition?
In this episode of the award-winning Life Behind Bars podcast, co-hosts David Wondrich and Noah Rothbaum are joined by Matt Hoffman, co-founder, CEO and chief distiller of Westland Whiskey; Becky Paskin, award-winning Half Full columnist; and Iain McPherson, pioneer bartender and bar owner based in Edinburgh. While enjoying a glass of whiskey, the panelists discussed the possibility of American single malt competing – or even surpassing – Scotch.
So pour yourself a glass of single malt whiskey and listen to this episode of Life Behind Bars. Cheers!
