Our World Whisky section covers the various styles and regions of the world, including whisky from countries like Wales, India, Taiwan, Australia and beyond.

New Zealand's growing whisky industry also features here, from the now-closed Willowbank distillery in Dunedin (1951-1997) through to the Thomson Whisky Company in Auckland and Workshops Whisky from right here in Christchurch. The biggest whisky distillery in New Zealand is the family-owned Cardrona, whose spirit first ran in November 2015.
