Your Guide To Scotch Whisky

by Jim Cassidy
Publication Date: 05/09/2020

This illustrated guide will take you through the history of Scotch Whisky from the illicit stills among the hillsides and glens of the Highlands to it becoming the world's most famous drink.

We look at the various developments that led to Scotland, a country of less than 6 million inhabitants, now exporting more than a billion bottles of Scotch Whisky around the world every year.

You will discover how Scotch Whisky is produced, before looking at the different types of whisky, from the most popular blended whiskies to the sought after single malts.

How to understand the labels on the bottles so you know exactly what your buying and very importantly, just how to drink a single malt ( forget the ice! )
