Character Goatson
Lowland style New Zealander.
 
It is no surprise that New Zealand has a history of Whisky distillation. The Island sits at the opposite latitude as the British Isles and it was settled by a bunch of Scots back in the 1800s. The only thing missing are the kilts. But there was a dark time for distilling in Kiwi-land. Back in the 1980s and 90s, governmental regulation virtually erased distilling from the islands. 
 
Enter Greg Ramsey in 2009. He discovered that hundreds of old barrels from the now-closed distilleries were sitting idle in warehouses and getting ready to be auctioned off. They bought and bottled up the orphaned spirits under their original names and are using the proceeds to restart production. They have revitalized a dozen classic New Zealand Whiskies and—God bless ‘em — it looks like they are just getting started. 
 
Milford 10 Year Old is a true single malt expression lovingly saved from obscurity by the team at The New Zealand Whisky Collection. This batch of barrels has been aged a full 10 years in American Oak, ex-Bourbon barrels in ideal climatic conditions. All of them were distilled in small-batch, copper pot stills. There is nothing missing from the formula here and the soul and body of this beaut’ is as Lowland as it gets.

Although the Wilowbank distillery closed, its stills aren't silent. They were dismantled and sent to Fiji to produce Rum.
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.
