Tremors, Tequila and Tamales - The Mexican Paradigm

6.4. That is the size of the tremors that are shaking our table as Whisky and Wings writes from Guadalajara, Mexico. Earthquakes set aside, it is surprising to us that very little whisky is produced in Mexico. This does not mean that Mexicans themselves do not have a flavor for the drink. In fact, the whisky available in Mexico tends to be of the blended and bourbon persuasion.

The availability of single malt European varieties is quite negligible. We did however manage to sample some excellent Buchanan's, which is a brand of Scotch whisky owned by Diageo and produced in Scotland. All said and done, we recommend readers to check out our recent post on purchasing whisky duty free before you go to Mexico.
