Strange ideas 'R' us

The OH and I went to a restaurant called The Village Pub, which has a mind-bogglingly large selection of wines and spirits. We don't drink much at all but I was amusing myself by perusing the dessert drinks list, which had many whiskys, including a Welsh whisky. I didn't know there was any such thing as Welsh whisky. Maybe partly because, as Wikipedia tells me, there wasn't any from sometime in the 19th century until 1990.

Anyway, I wound up on http://www.celticmalts.com/ reading an article about Welsh whisky, and I glanced at the sidebar and saw a link labeled "Outer Hebridean whisky." Both Wales and the Hebrides are important in the history of knitting and sheep breeding, so suddenly my brain went "Whisky and knitting tour! Single malt whisky and single origin sheep!"
