Whisky Show 2018 Recap and a Review of the ‘Future of Whisky’ Invergordon 44 (51.6%), Ben Nevis 21 (47.5%) and Ledaig 12 (58.4%)

The Whisky Show 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the iconic London event. The theme of this year’s Show was ‘The Future of Whisky’, and if there’s one definitive glimpse I can offer you on the future of whisky, it’s this:¬†Expensive.¬† (At least until the next whisky loch, slowly distilling as we speak).
