Scotland and Japan make whisky history

A fusion of malt whiskies, the first commercial product to combine spirits from Scotland and Japan, has just been launched simultaneously in Aberdeen and Tokyo. The Glover is named after and inspired by the Scottish industrialist Thomas Blake Glover (1838-1911). Glover played a huge role in Japans economic development, introducing shipyards, coal mines and brewing. His legacy survives today in the form of the Mitsubishi Corporation and Kirin beer. So, even as they make history, the blenders of The Glover are acknowledging history as the source of their inspiration. For more information, follow the link below.
