Beer, check. Whisky, check. Good? Check.

Let's begin at the beginning. Rothaus is not a distillery, it's a brewery. A very famous one for that matter. It was founded back in 1791 on the site of a Benedictine monastery and lies right in the middle of the Black Forest region in Germany, named for the beautiful mountain landscape with its dense population of pine trees. The brewery is well famous for making awesome beer, but how does their Whisky-making fare, you might wonder?

Just fine, judging by the Black Forest Rothaus Single Malt. Trust us or trust the awards – since they’ve been winning them left and right. Point is, they know how to make beer and they know how to make Whisky. But we digress… So, since Rothaus cannot distill the Spirit, the mash is transferred to Karlsruhe, to the Kammer-Kirsch Distillery. The Whisky is distilled twice in small copper pot stills, then brought back to Rothaus, where it’s aged for 3 years in ex-bourbon oak casks and bottled at 43% ABV.

The end result is a very delicate, smooth dram. On the one hand, it’s extremely approachable, on the other hand, its depth and complexity make it a treat even for all you experienced aficionados. Despite the age, this dram definitely came of age. Critics love it and so do the fans. This right here is a limited edition, extremely desirable bottle that sells faster than bratwurst at Oktoberfest, so you better get a move on, if you want one for yourself.

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.  
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.
