Ian Buxton worked in the drinks industry for more than 30 years as a writer, commentator and consultant, Marketing Director of a world-leading single malt, and accidental owner of a derelict distillery. Witty, focused, practical pointers to some of the world’s finest whiskies, his distinctive style and deep industry knowledge offer unique insights into the world of whisky.

Not an awards list, 101 Whiskies to Try Before You Die is a whisky guide with a difference. It is simply a guide to the 101 whiskies that enthusiasts must seek out and try in order to continue their whisky education.

Mainly an emphasis on North American whiskies, particularly from Canada, and – in place of Buxton’s own tasting note. Entries from the likes of Cotswolds, Mackmyra, and Teerenpeli – along with Scottish, Irish, American, and Canadian stalwarts – capture just how wide-ranging the world of whisky has become, and how much work the exploratory taster has ahead of them.

Awesome sauce for even the slightest of whisky nerds … completely worth picking up!
