March 27th Is International Whisky Day!

Origin of International Whisky

国际威士忌日的起源

International Whisky Day was first announced on March 27 2008, then officially launched in 2009 at the Whisky Festival Northern Netherlands, in the presence of various whiskey writers.

国际威士忌日最初于2008年3月27日宣布成立,于2009年在北荷兰威士忌节上正式启动,众多爱好威士忌的作家出席。

This was an initiative to honor the whisky connoisseur and writer, Michael Jackson. (No, not the famous singer.) He was well known for his writings on whisky and was also diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. His whisky-loving friends wanted to not only celebrate his love for whisky but also help find a cure for this difficult disease, so each year whisky fans donate money to charities of their choice. Since Michael’s birthday was March 27, the date is a tribute to him.

这是一项向威士忌鉴赏家兼作家迈克尔·杰克逊致敬的倡议。(不是那位著名歌手迈克尔杰克逊)他以关于威士忌的著作而闻名,然而诊断出患有帕金森症。他那些热爱威士忌的朋友们不仅想庆祝他对威士忌的热爱,还想帮助他找到治疗这种难治性疾病的方法,所以每年威士忌爱好者都会向他们选择的慈善机构捐款。因为迈克尔的生日是3月27日,所以确定这一也天是为了纪念他。

On this day we invite every whisky lover to raise a glass and celebrate the greatest drink in the world, as well as honor the unsung heroes of the industry from today back to when it all began.

在这一天里,我们邀请每一位威士忌爱好者举杯庆祝世界上最伟大的饮料,并向从今天开始的行业无名英雄致敬。

Celebrate With The Unique UMESKY

用独一无二的梅子威士忌庆祝吧

Umesky is a unique blend of whisky and ume fruits. Every July unripe ume is steeped in the whisky made in the distillery, slowly drawing out the sweetness and sourness of ume. Ume is harvested in Toyama prefecture and it is steeped for around a year in whisky.

梅子威士忌是一种独特的威士忌和梅子水果的混合酒。每年七月,将未成熟的梅子浸泡在酒造酿造的威士忌中,慢慢地浸出梅子的酸甜味道。使用产自富山县的梅子,在威士忌酒中浸泡一年左右。

The result is hard to describe but the delicate aroma of ume and the smooth whiskey are the characteristics of Umesky. At the first sip, you will feel the acidity of ume (which is a little bit stronger than regular umeshu), and then the smooth taste of whisky will follow soon after.

虽然很难描述这种感觉,但梅子细腻的香气和平滑的威士忌是就是梅子威士忌的特点喽!第一口,你会感受到梅子的酸味(比普通梅子浓一点),然后很快就会感受到威士忌的顺滑口感了。
