Wine, Cheese, Scotch and Sample: Know the Source

What do wine, cheese, scotch and sample all have in common? The source makes all the difference.

Sparkling white wine is made all over the world, but the only sparkling white wine that can be called Champagne is from the Champagne region of France.

Under Italian law, “Parmigiano-Reggiano” is the name for cheese produced only in the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Bologna, Modena, and Mantua. European law classifies the name, as well as the translation “Parmesan”, as a protected designation of origin.

On the island of Islay in Scotland, the water is so filled with peat that it runs red out of the tap. The peat bog source of the water is what drives the strong peaty flavor of Islay scotches like Laphroaig, Bowmore and Lagavulin.

In all these places, the source is so important to the flavor that laws exist to ensure consumers get the real thing.

In this report, we’ll see that the source is equally important for sample.
