Jim Murray is a legend and leading player on the world’s whisky stage. It is now over 25 years since he became the world’s first-ever full time whisky writer. And this 2020 edition of his Whisky Bible marks the 17th year of annual publication.
In this 2020 edition over 4,700 whiskies from over 30 different countries are included and evaluated in Jim's forthright, honest, amusing, fiercely independent and non-pretentious style.
“This year, 2019, marks the 25th anniversary of the publication of my first-ever whisky book – Jim Murray’s Irish Whiskey Almanac.
A lot has changed in the industry since 1994, but it remains my goal and pleasure that I keep people abreast of the amazing developments within Irish whiskey with each year bringing out Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
It is fitting that in the 25th year of my writing about Irish whiskey that my company has teamed up with Serghios Florides & Irish Whiskey Media in order that we make the Whisky Bible as comprehensively available on the island of Ireland, both sides of the border, as possible.
With so many new Irish distilleries now on the cusp of entering both the local and worldwide marketplace, I’m delighted to have been able to work alongside Irish Whiskey Media to ensure that as many people as possible can discover what is on offer by giving totally independent reviews of the quality being offered.
Exciting times for Irish whisky. And for Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible in Ireland!”
