A JOURNEY THROUGH THE
WORLD OF WHISKIES,ONE INSIGHT AT A TIME
With a topography that stretches from the lofty terrains of Ben Navis to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, Scotland is a land of diverse geographies.
Once upon a time there were two brothers who lived in a town where the river meets the North Sea, in the Scottish isles. James and John Chivas, as they were called decided to venture into a new territory, and in 1801, opened a grocery store in the bustling port town of Aberdeen. But, their grocery store was like no other, for it sold rum, brandy, and whisky to its customers. Back in those days, grocers would often turn into distilleries, but the Chivas brothers performed both the roles with élan. And, that was only the beginning of what would later grow into a whisky empire.
The Glenlivet Enigma is part of a series of limited edition mystery released by the Speyside giants. The 2019 release was named The Glenlivet Enigma, and it is the fourth edition of the mystery series.
The Irish were perhaps far more advanced than the rest of the world for whiskey lovers. Why? Well, since they are credited with creating, modifying and perfecting the art of distilling whiskey nearly six centuries ago. This makes Ireland the birthplace of whiskey as we know it today, and visiting the country is nothing short of a pilgrimage if one worships uisce beatha, Gaelic for ‘water of life.’
