Swiss Scotch

You know that something has gone mainstream if Swiss retailer Coop writes about it in its newspaper. Case in point is malt whisky. But Swiss whisky? Swissky? Switch??

There seems to be about a dozen or so distilleries producing whisky in Switzerland. The best reviews (according to Coop Zeitung) are accorded to Z├╝rcher and Swissky. I am still not sure whether that's the right present to bring around next time I go to Scotland ...

Hopefully it's an improvement on the rather harsh (to my taste, anyway) Schnapps that seems to prevail here...

Harsh? Generally, I don't like fruit liquors either, but I wouldn't call it harsh, exactly. A 60% smoky Islay whisky is more my idea of harsh ...

Swiss beer, Simran? It's bland, at least the widely guzzled lager stuff is. So, no I don't like lagers. But there is a growing number of very tasty micro breweries around. Why do you ask?
