Scotland's New Strathearn Distillery Has Now Aged Spirit Long Enough to Sell it as "Scotch Whisky"

Of course, before whisky may be marketed as "Scotch" it must be matured in Scotland for at least 3 years. Scotland's new Strathearn distillery has just hit the 3 year mark. Congratulations Strathearn, I look forward to being able to buy your whisky here in the U.S.!
