Immigrants in the United Kingdom are happy to be there. However, they have to deal with things that they never thought that they would be dealing with before they flew there. Examples of these would be homesickness and craving for local food. Sometimes, they also long for the company of friends and most immigrants do not usually have friends in the UK since they are new there. But, eventually, they are able to adjust and are able to discover ways on how to get over these obstacles.
There are plenty of activities that immigrants can engage in to be able to adjust well in the UK. They can go exploring the countryside or maybe even enjoy the lure of the outdoors. Some go on tours of the country during their days off work and learn more about the place. For some, they would rather go to a pub or a bar and enjoy a drink or two and maybe even earn new friends while they are there.
There are two drinks in a pub or a bar that may be known all over the world but have strong ties to the United Kingdom. These are whisky and beer. Read on and learn about them.
All around the globe, the UK is known for being a producer of Scottish whisky. When Scottish whisky is produced in this country, it means that manufacturers have to legally age it for three years at least. The drink should be stored in casks and be made in Scotland, thus the name.
Scottish whisky is known without the letter E as compared to whiskey. Whisky (without the E) is made using malted barley and is purely made in the UK. The one with the E is made everywhere else in the world. Immigrants also should know that in the entire country, there are only 115 distilleries that are officially allowed to produce this drink. This means that immigrants who choose to drink Scottish whisky are assured that what they are having is authentic.
Beer is definitely one of the world’s most popular drinks to have to unwind or get drunk. Next to wine perhaps. And this case is true even in the UK. In fact, it is the most popular in the country. As per data, out of all the drinks that are being ordered in pubs and bars, 70% of those are for mugs or glasses or bottles of beer.
This alcoholic drink has been brewing in the UK even before the ancient Romans have arrived in the country. These breweries have remained in the country that even until today, there are still a good number of them all around the United Kingdom. The country is also known for its production of ales and porters, two types of beer that are being enjoyed by people all around the world.
