SCOTCH FACTS

If you know me, then you know I enjoy the occasional cocktail after work. I’m specifically a fan of whisky, with a preference for Scotch whisky, and I consider myself our team’s whisky expert. Weekly I share what I call, “Scotch Facts: Your Weekly Dram of Whisky Wisdom” with my office friends and I thought you might like to see it too. Cheers!  – Justin
 
Whisky Fact of the Week:
Scotland has more distilleries in operation than any other country with nearly 100 distilleries. In second? The great United States!

Drunken Vocabulary (Words and terms to impress your friends while drinking):
Swill: to drink something greedily or in large quantities. Something you never do with good whisky.

Lagniappe (a little something extra):
J&B Whisky recently did something a little strange: they commissioned 25 skin-colored bottles to be “tattooed” by an artist in Paris and sold them in two stores on the Champs Elysée. Check out a little video behind the designs here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E9_L5oyn7zs#t=2
