Irish Whiskey Distilleries Data Set

Posted on Updated on

I’ve been building some Irish Whiskey data sets, and the first of these data sets contains details of all the Whiskey Distilleries in Ireland. This page contains the following:

  • Table describing the attributes/features of the data set
  • Data set, in a scroll able region
  • Download data set in different formats
  • Map of the Distilleries
  • Subscribe to Twitter List containing these Distilleries, and some Twitter Hash Tags
  • How to send me updates, corrections and details of Distilleries I’ve missed

If you use this data set (and my other data sets) make sure to add a reference back to data set webpage. Let me know if you use the data set is an interesting way, share the details with me and I’ll share it on my blog and social media for you.

This data set will have it’s own Irish Distilleries webpage and all updates to the data set and other information will be made there. Check out that webpage for the latest version of things.

Irish Whishkey Distillery Twitter List

Have a look out for these twitter hash tags on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, as people from around the world share what whiskeys they are tasting that evening. Irish and Scotish Whiskies are the most common.

How to send me updates, corrections and details of Distilleries I’ve missed

Let me know, via the my Contact page,  if you see any errors in the data set, especially if I’m missing any distilleries.

Scottish Whisky Data Set – Updated

Posted on Updated on

The Scottish Whiskey data set consist of tasting notes and evaluations from 86 distilleries around Scotland. This data set has been around a long time andwas a promotional site for a book, Whisky Classified: Choosing Single Malts by Flavour. Written by David Wishart of the University of Saint Andrews, the book had its most recent printing in February 2012.

I’ve been using this data set in one of my conference presentations (Planning my Summer Vacation), but to use this data set I need to add 2 new attributes/features to the data set. Each of the attributes are listed below and the last 2 are the attributes I added. These were added to include the converted LAT and LONG comparable with Google Maps and other similar mapping technology.

Attributes include:

  • RowID
  • Distillery
  • Body
  • Sweetness
  • Smoky
  • Medicinal
  • Tobacco
  • Honey
  • Spicy
  • Winey
  • Nutty,
  • Malty,
  • Fruity,
  • Floral,
  • Postcode,
  • Latitude,
  • Longitude
  • lat  — newly added
  • long  — newly added

Here is the link to download and use this updated Scottish Whisky data set.

The original website is no longer available but if you have a look at the Internet Archive you will find the website.
