Explore the five Scotch whisky regions

Regionality is the greatest starting point when exploring scotch whiskies. Traditionally this is the most common way retailers both online and offline, organise and arrange their whiskies. 

The Scotch Whisky Regulations (SWR) in 2009 formalised three Scottish Regions – Highlands, Lowlands and Speyside. Along with two localities – Campbeltown and Islay. In aim to encourage Scotch’s European Union Geographical Indication (GI) and to ensure worldwide identity protection.

“They’re there because Scotch whisky is a protected GI, and regions with reputation and character are entitled to that protection. Because Highland, Lowland, Speyside, Islay, and so on are such longstanding regions, we wanted to ensure they are protected in law from misuse and damage [to their] reputations.”

– Alan Park, legal director at the Scotch Whisky Association.

Quite often where a scotch whisky is made determines how it tastes, explore the different regions below and if you are interested in purchasing a cask from one specific region, please get in touch.
