In a country that has a unicorn as their national animal it will come as no surprise that the Scots also have a very proud heritage in Whisky also known as “water of life”.  Albeit that Whiskey originates in Ireland, the Scots have taken great pride ensuring that Scottish Whisky (without the “e”) has a strong Scottish heritage and can only be called such if the water and barley are from Scotland and must mature in casks for 3 years and 1 day.  As the whisky matures it loses 2% due to evaporation known as Angel Share

Their fame is such that whisky is exported to 175 countries in the world at a rate of 42 bottles each second and some whiskies are so sort after and recently a 60 year old Macallan Valerio Adami 1926, cost a staggering £848,000 at auction.

The one thing I can attest,  if you have enough whisky, you can see the Scottish unicorn!
