Yesterday saw the first, of hopefully many, World Whisky Days. The event was started by Blair Bowman, a student at the University of Aberdeen, and celebrated with over 150 events in over 30 different countries, from Germany to Singapore. Bowman, who grew up in Edinburgh, hopes that the day will spark interest in the industry and boost tourism to Scotland.
Either way, pat-on-the-back for Bowman for creating an event, long over due which gives us all another great reason to enjoy a wee dram!
