Inbox is our weekly round up of whisky news and PR type material that has recently found its way in to our email inbox. Inbox was born as we sadly cannot write full articles or do justice to every piece that we receive. It features items from around the world of whisky and is published by us each Friday. Within Inbox we will write a few lines detailing each press release/piece of news/PR event that we have received and provide links, where possible, for you to find out further information if you want to. So here goes with this week's edition. Enjoy ...
Buffalo Trace > Two new white whiskies launched
Master of Malt > New Dailuaine bottling announced
Suntory > New Japanese cocktails created
