The Perfect Measure

A journey through the ground-breaking whiskies of the 21st Century

The 20 Whiskies that Changed the World tasting set tells the story of this transformation in the best way possible, by offering you the chance to try the whiskies that made it happen.

On this page you'll find a series of videos, where The Whisky Exchange's co-founder Sukhinder Singh and ambassador Billy Abbott taste their way through each of the flights in the set, and give you some background on each of the whiskies and how they changed the world.

Dip in for a dram or follow along with a full tasting flight and a video masterclasses – join us for a journey of discovery.
