/ scotch under threat from japan's new generation
scotland’s global dominance of the whisky industry is facing a hi-tech challenge from japanese distillers, an expert has warned. drinks writer michael jackson believes that scotch whisky producers cannot afford to "rest on their laurels". he argues that the japanese rise in whisky production echoes the challenge of new world wines to france’s traditional dominance. in 2001, a bottle of japanese yoichi single malt produced by nikka beat scottish and american rivals to win whisky magazine’s "best of the best" competition.
jackson's whisky the definitive world guide is published on apr 28.
