The Story of Scotch Whisky

The Story of Scotch Whisky

This large format hardback, The Story of Scotch Whisky, is a celebration of both whisky drinking and of Scotland, covering every facet, from the distilling process to guided tours of the best-loved distilleries of the Highlands, Islands and Lowlands.

Beautifully illustrated with more than 150 photographs and featuring numerous reproductions of items of whisky memorabilia, including letters, posters, licences and advertising art, readers can fully immerse themselves in the heritage of the nation's favourite spirit.

Whisky's history dates from the late fifteenth century. From these ancient origins this seasonal, homespun  spirit gradually evolved into Scotland's most famous liquid export, surviving wars, tax, temperance and Prohibition.

This volume retells the story of whisky and guides the reader around dozens of distilleries from Orkney to the Mull of Kintyre. Through the text and tasting notes, author Tom Bruce-Gardyne explains just the individual flavour and character of whiskies, even if produced just a few miles apart, can be so different.
