Website of the Week: WhiskyMerchants.co.uk



This week’s top website – and it’s been a long time coming – is WhiskyMerchants.co.uk.

A keen Twitter aficionado and (obviously!) a whisky advocate, WhiskyMerchants.co.uk brings you “information about all types of whiskies, tasting notes, expressions and bottlers”. This includes lots of details about distilleries & their history, visitor centres and all the relevant contact details.

We like this site. It is PACKED with information and tasting notes about every whisky you could think of (and a few more besides). Despite this density the site is easy to navigate and above all displays an enthusiasm for the subject which is pretty inspiring. Take a look!
