The Whisky Portal is a private and completely independent
site. The goal is relatively modest: To offer basic information (and
links to more information) about all whisky distilleries, bottlers and
blenders in the world. I do my best to ensure that the information
provided is as correct and accurate as possible, however I will take
no responsibility for any error or mistake.
It started as a hobby, where I
was collecting the information "for fun", and for private
use. During the search I realised that there was a lot of places on
the internet with some information - but I never found one single site
with all the information I was looking for. So it was obvious to me
that the database I was creating should be publicly and freely
available. This was done in 1999 on my private homepage, and in the summer 2000 I was ready to launch The Whisky Portal.
A lot of people and sources has contributed to this
site with ideas and information. In particular, Rainer
Kitzmiller, Dr. Alex
Kraaijeveld and other members of the "Malts-L" list (see the link-page)
has contributed with a lot of facts.
I would like to thank everyone
involved for contributing and being helpful. I have always tried to
avoid "stealing" information, and has preferred to link to
The pictures used has primarily been sent to me by the
distilleries, but also MacY, Juuls Vin & Spiritus
and several individuals, in particular Martin Markvardsen have been helpful.
A warm thank you to all. Without you this
site would never be the same.
