'Scotch', Scotland, Glen Coe Valley
Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.
A little known fact, which I wasn't thrilled to find out is that Whisky was invented in China. It was originally first distilled by monks in Ireland in the early 15th century. A century later it finally reached Scotland and today Scotch is enjoyed and celebrated around the globe. Coincidently, in the last few decades the Japanese have been carefully studying and crafting their own version of Scottish Whisky, bringing back the drink to its eastern origins.
