2001 Vintage Whisky

Whisky, Wikipedia and the human genome

In 2001, the Human Genome Project completed its first successful mapping, unlocking secrets of DNA and paving the way for medical breakthroughs. Wikipedia was launched, democratizing information access. Apple introduced the iPod, revolutionizing music consumption, and the world was rocked by the 9/11 attacks in New York City. In whisky, Yamazaki 12-Year-Old started gaining international acclaim, putting Japanese whisky firmly on the map.

The expression was noted for its meticulous craftsmanship and subtle complexity, drawing favourable comparisons with Scotch. In Scotland, Aberfeldy launched its 21-Year-Old, a honey-laden, sumptuous whisky that added gravitas to the distillery’s core range.

Among independent bottlers, Berry Bros & Rudd launched the Blue Hanger series, named after William ‘Blue’ Hanger, Lord Coleraine, a loyal customer of Berry Bros & Rudd during the 18th century. This blended malt Scotch whisky was meticulously created to offer a compelling combination of fruitiness and smoky elegance. For whisky collectors, 2001 stands as a significant year, underlined by global events that shook the world. Despite the turbulent backdrop, the whisky industry persisted in its quest for quality and innovation, enriching the portfolio available to enthusiasts and investors.
