Invented around 3500 B.C., the wheel helps to make the world go round. But it wasn’t until the emergence of the exotic ritual of tea drinking arrived in 17th-century England that rolling beverage service became popular. The appeal of moving the party anywhere throughout the home, then neatly locking expensive tea away for safekeeping applies equally to whisky. When you’re ready to entertain at home, the best advice is to simply stock up on whisky and roll with it.
