whisky-photo2As a growing number of rabbonim feel that whiskey (I use the term to refer to all types of hard drinks) require a reliable hechsher, there seem to be more and more companies searching for kosher supervision.

I feel compelled to add here that liqueurs must have a hechsher since they contain many ingredients and demand kosher supervision, unlike the leniencies enjoyed by other hard drinks, such as scotch.

Whatever the case may be, noted authority Rabbi Shmuel Semelman offers a list of what he calls “higher end” hard drinks and their hechsherim, which include London Beit Din, OU and the Manchester Beit Din.

Following is a link to Rabbi Semelman’s list
