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:
Scotch Facts are just the beginning; you can actually attend The Scotch Whisky Training School in Edinburgh and get the full-on whisky education you always dreamed of. They’ll teach you everything from differences in the history of whisky to the art of blending. More info: http://www.scotlandwhisky.com/trade/ScotchWhiskytrainingschool/

Your New Favorite Bar:
Jack Rose – Washington, D.C. You could spend your entire life in this place and never try all the whiskies. Oh, and they have whisky on draft. If you’re ever in D.C., make sure you stop here. http://jackrosediningsaloon.com/

Lagniappe (a little something extra):
Did you know: There’s an initiative going on in the UK right now to turn whisky by-products into biofuel that can power cars? Check it out: http://www.clickgreen.org.uk/news/national-news/124862-whisky-powered-vehicles-take-step-closer-to-commercial-reality.html
