Grain whisky has long been largely (and perhaps unfairly) shunned by whisky enthusiasts. Relatively few drinkers even understand what it is. It’s distilled from a combination of malted and unmalted grains, including but not limited to barley; wheat and corn are usually the other major players. It’s distilled in a column still rather than a traditional pot still, which imparts a lighter, more delicate flavor than malt whisky.
Bowmore is the oldest surviving distillery on the rocky, remote Scottish island of Islay, dating back to 1779. But as is the case with almost all Scotch whiskies, it was distilled exclusively for use in blends. You couldn’t go into a liquor store and buy a bottle of Bowmore single malt until 1966, which coincidentally was the same year a young man named Eddie MacAffer began working at the distillery.
New Yorkers are known to go to absurd lengths to celebrate New Year’s Eve—whether it’s standing for hours in Times Square just to watch the ball drop at midnight or paying hundreds of dollars to dine at chain restaurants because they offer a view of said ball. Less absurd and much more extravagant is the Big Apple’s most spectacular way to welcome 2018—and while it doesn’t involve an up-close view of the famous ball, it features enough hoopla that the ball won’t even be missed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
