Malt Whisky Yearbook 2022 Review

15th November 2020
Review of the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2022, a book which focuses on the facts & figures, history, recent events and the latest bottlings from the malt whisky distilleries around the world but focuses in more detail on the distilleries of Scotland.

Malt Whisky Yearbook 2022You know autumn is here and Christmas is on the way when the Malt Whisky Yearbook starts appearing on the bookshop shelves, the new Malt Whisky Yearbook 2022 is the 17th annual edition of the whisky facts packed book and as always it has been fully revised and updated by the Yearbook editor Ingvar Ronde.

Since its first publication back in 2005 the Malt Whisky Yearbook has become an essential resource for whisky enthusiasts to check whisky facts & figures, history and recent events for malt whisky distilleries around the world.

This latest edition covers no less than 727 malt whisky distilleries around the world, most space is allocated to the malt whisky distilleries of Scotland, with most established Scotch malt whisky distilleries covered over at least one page which details each distilleries production facts and figures, history as well as a brief listing of their current whisky offerings and many of the distilleries covered have one of two tasting notes usually for their popular core range bottlings giving readers an insight into the style of whisky the distillery produces.

The ever growing number of new Scotch malt whisky distilleries are also covered and perhaps of interest to whisky enthusiasts and collectors their is a section 'Closed Distilleries' which covers some closed and even demolished distilleries which are still of interest.

There is a section covering malt whisky distilleries around the world - Europe, North America, Australia & New Zealand, Asia, Africa and South America. This section continues to expand year on year, although not as detailed a section as the Scotch section it certainly gives the reader an insight into malt whisky which is now being produced around the world. There is also an entire chapter about the world's leading independent whisky bottlers.

The Malt Whisky Yearbook is primarily but not just a reference book, there are contributions from well known whisky writers and commentators such as Charles MacLean, Gavin D Smith, Ian Wisniewski and Stefan van Eycken. You will also find a comprehensive summary of the news and trends in the whisky industry.
