Whisky, A Very Peculiar History' takes a sideways look at this most inebriating beverage from its simplistic origins to its pride of place in the drinks cabinets of the world. When Henry VIII disbanded the monasteries and let those brewing monks out into the wilderness, he had no idea of the kind of beast he'd unleashed. Whisky was used as a medicine, giving 'the glow of apparent well-being' and even horses were known to be given a dram here and there (although via the kneecaps). Featuring quirky tales of whisky's development and refining through the ages and detailed stories about its effect on the common man and woman, 'Whisky, A Very Peculiar History' delivers a warm aftertaste of hilarity with every shot of fact.
