About The Whiskyphiles
Whiskyphile, noun [C] specialized / ˈwis.Ki.fajl / a disciplined devotion to whisky. Established 2013.
The Whiskyphiles was established in 2013 as a personal online repository of whisky tasting notes by its creator Dr Barry Bradford. Relocating to Edinburgh in 1994 exposed me to the capital of Scotland and Scotch Whisky. Over the years I have established relationships with societies, distillers, blenders, retailers and consumers of whisky. In 2009 I started purchasing bottles of Single Malt Scotch Whisky from every distillery in order to sample them all. I embarked upon a quest in 2011 to visit every working distillery in Scotland. The Whiskyphiles was setup in 2013 to provide an online record of my personal whisky tasting notes. I was the Communications Officer for the Edinburgh University Water of Life Society dedicated to enjoying whisky and having a good time for 2014-2015. In 2015 I established the Alfred Barnard Society as resource for those interested in visiting whisky distilleries. In 2017 The Whiskyphiles was nominated for the UK Blog Awards and was featured in the Malt Whisky Yearbook 2018 edition websites to watch. Over time The Whiskyphiles has developed into an online broadsheet keeping track of whisky & cask-aged spirits news, events, festivals, new releases as well tasting notes and reviews.
