Even when you’re sober, the whiskey world can get bewildering pretty quickly. Whether you’re parsing out the difference between Scotch and bourbon, or trying to figure out why whiskey is sometimes spelled whisky, it’s easy to get confused.

Pop Chart Lab is here to solve all your whiskey worries. The design company that created the most comprehensive charting of beer ever and this super-detailed craft brewery map has taken on ye olde “amber elixer.”

The new chart, called “The Many Varieties of Whiskey,” is an exhaustive compilation of our favorite drink’s many varieties. Slick, minimalist typography keeps the focus on the booze.

The company says of its latest project:

Follow along a veritable world tour of the most-celebrated cask-born beverage, making major stops in the US (Jack Daniels, Knob Creek), Ireland (Jameson, Tullamore Dew), Canada (Crown Royal, Seagram’s), and Scotland (Johnnie Walker, The Glenlivet).

The 18″x24″ poster is available for pre-order, and will begin shipping on April 16. The price is $23.

    Way too many mistakes to make it worthwhile. Off the top of my head: Early Times is not Kentucky Bourbon, Russell’s Reserve is not a Rye and Wiser’s is not made by Sazerac.

    Though pretty – no Japanese whiskey? They have Suntory on there, but only their European and American holdings? How does that make sense?
