Publisher Comments:

From Glenlivet to Talisker, an evocative portrait of Scotland’s distilleries

 

Treating Scotland as eight distinct regions, this fascinating book describes the cultural terroir of the country’s 50 greatest distilleries and their exquisite range of single-malt whiskies. It details the entire distillation process, including the ingredients of local barley and spring water; the practices of roasting, smoking with peat, and fermentation; and the traditions unique to the geography of each region. More than 250 specially commissioned photographs capture the texture of the surrounding landscapes through the changing seasons, vividly portraying the craftsmen who work there and detailing the fabric of the buildings themselves. A unique addition to the literature on Scotch whisky and featuring text from the world’s greatest whisky expert, Spirit of Place is the perfect gift for anyone planning to tour Scotland’s distilleries, a souvenir for anyone who has visited them, and simply the perfect companion to a dram at home.

Synopsis:

World Whiskey is a long overdue visual bible of over 700 worldwide whiskeys. Whiskeys Worth the Wait directory spreads make up the body of the book, marrying together distillery history, in-depth tasting notes, and a photograph. Guiding you through every important distilling nation - starting with the rich varieties in Scotland, going on to woody bourbon and rye in the US, and finishing with the range of varieties available in Asia and Australasia - you're sure to find a satisfying dram wherever you are.
