Our friends at Pop Chart Lab love tracing down the tangled, tortuous branches of the family trees connecting some of our favourite things. They have done it for beer, and now they’re switching to the hard stuff, with a lovely taxonomy of the world’s many types of whisky.
Like all of Pop Chart Lab’s creations, this whisky chart makes learning the origins of your favourite barrel-aged booze a visual joy. It’s available as an 18-inch x 24-inch poster, but the one you really want is the wood engraving shown here, laser-etched in cherry with steel straps top and bottom to evoke the look of a whisky barrel.
Hang this on your wall, pour a nice glass of something smooth, and do some self-guided whisky learning without having to leave the house. [Pop Chart Lab]
