World Whisky Day 2020

Best whiskies for this year's celebration day. A day of global whisky celebration World Whisky Day invites everyone on the 16th May 2020 to raise a dram and celebrate the water of life. Things may be a little different this year but that's all the more reason to mark the occasion and raise a glass to all we still have to be thankful for.We have created a guide to everything from sweet American bourbon to rich earthy Scotch.

In these dark and uncertain times, with the world on lockdown, a little of what George Bernard Shaw nicknamed “liquid sunshine” may be just what the doctor ordered. And, with this Saturday marking World Whisky Day, what better excuse to crack open a bottle of your favourite scotch or bourbon? We have rounded up some of our favourites for you to try in the comfort of your own home in celebration of Uisge Beatha or the “water of life”. 

We aren’t judgemental here, so all of the below can be enjoyed straight, with ice, a dash of water or a mixer...basically however you want. Where one of those is best, we have let you know.
