For Scotland and St George

I know that most Americans do not understand the differences between Great Britain and England and can use the terms interchangeably. In summary, Great Britain consists of three distinct countries: Wales, Scotland, and England. There are many Scots who wish that their country was not part of Great Britain and many more Scots who dislike England and the English.

I appreciate that there is no reason why this ignorance should be of concern to most Americans. However, if you have a business that makes a Scottish style whiskey, it might be advisable to understand that England is not the same as Scotland. This would avoid  the faux-pas of naming your whiskey after England’s Patron Saint and using his emblem on your label.


The distillery and tasting rooms are about forty-five minutes away from where I live, so in the name of duty to my readers I shall make the trip down to Alameda are report back.
