LuxeBook May 2022

I ndians are the largest whisky consumers in the world. It is consumed in the country in all sorts of settings — whether personal or professional. It is, more often than not, an occasional drinker’s go-to drink of choice. Since May 21 is World Whisky Day, LuxeBook takes this occasion to deep dive into the world of whisky. Whether it is to understand the nuances of how a glass can make a world of a difference (for instance, the beauty of the double-wall in a Norlan glass is that it serves to balance perfectly the need for a whisky to breathe, while preventing the whisky from absorbing warmth from your hand). Or perhaps to explore the Irish whisky subculture in Dublin (We don’t just drink.We drink like we are trying to wake the dead,” ). Some of the most recently awarded whiskies find mention in the pages inside. Grab a drink, get reading.
