Have you ever been overwhelmed by the number of whisky choices at your favorite liquor store? Have you ever been in a restaurant and wondered which whiskey to get? Have you ever wanted to try a new whiskey but don't want to risk spending your hard earned money on a whiskey you may not like? Have you ever wanted to enhance your knowledge of whiskey or whiskey distilleries? Have you ever wondered how to properly taste whiskey?
Enter MyWhisky, your solution to the above issues!
MyWhisky contains the history of distilleries, photographs and short tasting notes of whiskies & whiskeys by world-renowned whisky writer and expert Hans Offringa.
MyWhisky is a repository of nearly 300 whiskies and whiskeys from all over the world. They are made accessible via an A-Z brand index, a country index, a type index and a distillery index.
In a special section called MyWhisky Extras you can find information about what whiskey/whisky is, the production regions, the different types of whisky and whiskey, how to read labels, the art of whisky tasting and how to organize your own tasting as well as an overview of independent bottlers, whisky bars around the world and more.
Furthermore there is a section with daily whisky trivia assembled by the author: 365 days of whisky wit and wisdom at your immediate disposal! A great way to impress your friends with a tap of the screen.
And that is not all. You can add your own tasting notes and new whiskies yourself. That’s why we called it MyWhisky! Hans Offringa gives you a head start and invites you to build further on that. You can enter data such as nose and taste, but also cask number, year of distillation, year of bottling, where you tasted the whisky, with whom, etc.
The author credits Robin Brilleman and Ronald Zwartepoorte for their photographic contributions; Dana Zierler for the beautiful graphic design; Michael Byrne for his programming and managerial skills; Charles Waring for being there; Jane and Dede Waring for moral support; and last but not least his wife and muse Becky Lovett Offringa, for believing in the project, for research management and proofreading. Without Michael and Becky, MyWhisky would not have been there.
