"Scotch Whisky Regions". Doesn't sound particularly contentious, but few can actually agree on just how many there actually are. Are there 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 regions?
A 1909 UK Royal Commission on Whisky decided there were 5 whisky regions in Scotland; the Highlands, Lowlands, Islay, Campbeltown, and Speyside. Roll forwayd 100 years, and the UK's Scotch Whisky Regulations 2009 specified 3 whisky regions (Highlands, Lowlands, and Speyside), and 2 'localities' (Campbeltown and Islay).
Why the Islands are lumped in with the Highlands depside being both physically separate, and usually having a different character is something that will forever puzzle many. Some also break the Islands down further into "Inner Hebrides" and "Outer Islands". The Highlands also regularly get a similar treatment, being broken down into Northern Highlands, Southern Highlands, Eastern Highlands, and Western Highlands.
For our June flight, we will sample one whisky from each of the 5 official regions and localities, as well as the unofficial region of the Islands.
Individual cheese & charcuterie plates featuring Tilba cheese, Fedra olives, and Pialigo meats; and a bottle of water, will be provided for each attendee. If you have any dietary requirements, please advise us via email.
