News Sources

Discussion on malt whisky seems to appear most frequently on

The Malt Advocate magazine is a good source of news about the beer and whisky industries

"The Scotsman" newspaper publishes numerous articles on whisky and their archives are searchable

Malt Whisky mailing list

This started in February 1995 and is a forum for like-minded folk to discuss malts and associated topics. The list is run from Karlsruhe and there is a searchable archive on the site. This and instructions on how to join can be found at the Karlsruhe Malts-L list-server site

Other Web pages etc.

This list contains a mixture of links to personal and commercial Web pages so it seems a good moment to reiterate that this site in no way endorses any particular commercial product.

A couple of the sites listed here specialise in onwards links which probably means they're more up-to-date than I am. All yours...

Please note that Ulf Buxrud's list of links is much better than mine..

A miscellany the various servers dragged off the Web. You're on your own here:

This page would not be complete without a big "thank-you" to David Woolf, Søren Pingel Dalsgaard, Iain Russell and others whose assiduous searching has found URLs in odd nooks and crannies of the net that I would never have spotted..
