Most expensive whiskys in Kenya

Whiskies are dark alcoholic drinks that are made from grains. The grains used in whisky production are rye, wheat, corn, malted barley and the non-malted barley. There are also different production process that is utilized in different countries which gives rise to seven most common whisky categories in Kenya;

Single Malt whisky

Blended Scotch Whisky

Irish Whiskey

American Whiskey (Bourbon whiskey and Tennessee whiskey)

Indian Whisky

Canadian Whisky

Japanese Whisky


The quality of whisky improves with age. The older the whisky the darker it is, the more concentrated it is and consequently the higher the price. The high prices are justified with the long aging time which leads to more evaporation hence a huge reduction in the volume of the whisky. Single malt whisky is believed to be the most quality whiskies because they are only blended with whiskies from the same distillery, unlike other whiskies which are blended with whiskies from different distilleries to add more flavours. Single distillery blending in single malt whiskies ensures the taste of those whiskies bears the trademark taste of that particular distillery. Something else that makes the whiskies expensive is the exclusive bottling. The following is the list of ten most expensive whiskies in Kenya starting with the most expensive going down.
