"There isn't another guide on the market like it."--Jim Meehan, author of The PDT Cocktail Book. The first, most definitive guide to the exciting revolution happening in the world of Japanese whisky! "Japanese single malts have achieved cult status around the world," wrote Eric Asimov in the New York Times. Indeed, Japanese whiskies have become some of the most sought after and highly valued whiskies in the world. They have blended and melded traditional Scotch and American methods with new ideas, and imbued the whisky with exotic flavors from local Japanese woods to make a unique and signature product that not only rings true of whisky, but also speaks to Japanese terroir. In international competitions they have bested the traditional producer, and they have become absolutely the object of affection in the distilled spirits world! Now here in Whisky Rising, whisky authority and Japanese whisky expert Stefan Van Eycken takes you on a guided tour to some of the most coveted whiskies in the world. This elegant book includes: *Fascinating interviews and profiles with the most celebrated distillers and blenders *Behind-the-scenes look into past and present distilleries *An insider's guide to the best whisky bars *How to drink whisky properly and cocktail recipes *Tasting notes and reviews of THE best Japanese whiskies
