Welcome!

The Whiskey Chaps are dedicated to sharing unbiased whiskey notes and whiskey news.

‘The Whiskey Chaps’ was born from a mutual passion for all things ‘whisk[e]y’. Scottish, Irish, English, Welsh, Swedish, Taiwanese…..you name it, we’ll try it, discuss it and make notes on it!

Here on our site, you’ll find whiskey tasting notes, compiled from online tastings, everyday sips and visits to distilleries. We’ve also compiled a list of whiskey blogs, up to the minute whiskey news, a list of the most popular whisky glasses, whisky auction advice and tips and whiskey related info.


Take a look at our interactive UK & Ireland Distillery map!

Here you’ll find all of the whisky distilleries currently operating in the UK or Ireland.

Expand each area to see the distillery location and link to their website!

We’re constantly adding to the map, if you know a distillery not included, get in touch with details!
