The Whisky Exchange launches 20 Whiskies that Changed the World tasting pack

The Whisky Exchange is set to launch a tasting pack that takes fans of a dram on a journey through ground-breaking whiskies of the 21st century.

Published: April 13, 2021

To mark the two decades since the Whisky Exchange was founded, and to showcase the changing whisky landscape, brothers Sukhinder and Rajbir Singh have created a special tasting pack.

The 20 Whiskies that Changed the World pack contains whiskies that have had the greatest impact on Sukhinder and Rajbir, the whisky industry and whisky fans around the globe.

The new tasting pack contains 20 x 3cl perfect measure samples, which fall under four themes and offer whisky lovers the chance to go on a tasting journey of whisky history.

The whiskies are grouped into a selection of four themes – Whisky Revolution, Magic of the Cask, Peat Makes the World Go Round and The New World – and are accompanied by a tasting book featuring producer profiles, tasting notes, and online tasting videos.

The whiskies are arranged in tasting order so you can either enjoy them at your leisure or taste them in four flights alongside the video guides.

Speaking of the new tasting kits Sukhinder Singh said: “In the 1980s, when my brother Rajbir and I were living above and working in The Nest, our parents’ off-licence in north-west London, the world of whisky was very different to the thriving, innovative industry we see today. 

"Whisky was always magical – to us, at least – but the new ideas, innovations, techniques and personalities who have graced the whisky stage so far this millennium have elevated the world of whisky to a new level.

"We hope people enjoy drinking these whiskies as much as we enjoyed choosing them.”
