There are now countries all round the world making whiskey, some with more success than others! America, Canada and Japan are all highly capable of making first class whiskeys in their own unique styles, and in recent years there has been some huge interest in the Japanese whiskies. In the USA a revival of old loved brands and styles such as rye whiskey has led to an increase in interest. America has also seen the rise of carft/boutique distilleries many of which are also making other excellent products such as gin or vodka. Elsewhere the spread of whisky has been a bit more patchy, however there are great whiskeys now being made in countries such as India, Sweden, Holland and Taiwan.
