Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024 Review

9th November 2020
Review of the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024 which covers no less than 821 malt whisky distilleries around the world with all the facts updated. With the ever increasing number of distilleries this is a must have for any whisky enthusiasts wanting to keep track of the world of whisky and there are few tasting notes thrown in also to wet your whistle.

Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024It's that time of the year once again, when the latest, fully updated edition of the Malt Whisky Yearbook begins to grace the shelves of book shops. The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024 marks the 19th consecutive annual release of this comprehensive compendium of whisky information. As is customary, the Yearbook has undergone a thorough revision and update under the expert guidance of its editor, Ingvar Ronde.

With the what seems like ever increasing number of whisky distilleries these days the Yearbook has become more invaluable than ever for those of you wanting to keep up to date with the malt whisky world. The Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024 covers 821 malt whisky distilleries around the world, which is 47 more distilleries than the 2023 edition and as always it has been fully updated

As is customary, the majority of the content is dedicated to Scotland's malt whisky distilleries. The well-established Scotch malt whisky distilleries typically receive a full-page treatment, featuring production statistics, historical background, a concise listing of their current whisky offerings, and often a pair of tasting notes for their popular core range expressions, offering readers valuable insights into the distillery's whisky style.

The continuously expanding roster of new Scotch malt whisky distilleries receives coverage, with each new entrant allotted half a page for a detailed overview. The intriguing section for whisky enthusiasts and collectors devoted to "Closed Distilleries" has been dropped this, no doubt to make space for the increasing number of new distilleries and indeed the distilleries that have been resurrected such as Rosebank and Brora.

An additional section encompasses distilleries spanning the globe, including regions such as Europe, North America, Australia & New Zealand, Asia, Africa, and South America. While not as comprehensive as the Scotch section, this segment has rapidly expanded in recent years, offering readers valuable glimpses into the world of malt whisky production outside of Scotland. Furthermore, a dedicated chapter delves into the world's foremost independent bottlers, providing an in-depth exploration of their contributions to the whisky industry.

Malt Whisky Yearbook 2024 Features:
  • The main part of the book covers no less than 821 malt whisky distilleries around the world with all the facts updated
  • New exciting articles by distinguished writers such as Andrew Derbidge, Ian Wisniewski, Johanne McInnis, Kristiane Sherry, Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison.

More so now than ever before the Yearbook is a fantastic buy for any whisky lover wanting to stay up to date with the world of whisky given the number of new distilleries both in Scotland and around the world, not to mention the development and expansion of existing distilleries and there ever changing whisky ranges.

Without a doubt an ideal whisky gift for a whisky loving friend or family member, and if you haven't updated the copy of the Yearbook currently on your shelf in a few years I would highly recommend picking up a copy of the 2024 edition..
