About The Whisky Game

The Whisky Game is an educational fun board game not only for whisky connoisseurs. Each player becomes one of the legendary characters in the world of whisky and walks across Scotland and Ireland to visit local distilleries and create his/her own collection of the finest whiskies.

Notice: Playing this board game is definitely a social event, so it is nice to have a sip of delicious water of life with your friends. However, The Whisky Game is definitely not a so-called drinking game. It does not require players to drink whisky at any stage of its tasks.

"This is not your average board game. The Whisky Game is so packed full of history, industry terms, and legendary people that you will be fascinated for hours. Playing with a group of whisky aficionados is a blast, but I love to take the cards with me when I travel and quiz myself. I recommend this game to all novice and expert whisky lovers, or anyone wanting to learn about Scotch & Irish whisky in a clever and fun way."
