INTERNATIONAL WHISKY DAY 27TH MARCH

The 27th of March has since 2007 seen the celebration of the great drink of whisky... and of course one of its foremost advocates, writer Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson was born on 27th March 1942 and has been one of the most influential whisky writers out there, but sadly in 2007 he died from Parkinson's disease.

Today, on INTERNATIONAL WHISKY DAY you are encouraged to raise a glass of whisky in honour of the man who wrote one of the most well know whisky books ever - 'The Malt Whisky Companion'. It's also a plea to support the research into Parkinson's disease which can be done here.

Please also visit the International Whisky Day website and most importantly, enjoy a glass of whisky on this day!
