From the Publisher
For millions of people around the world, the spirit of Scotland
shimmers in a glass. Scotch is the world's most widely enjoyed
spirit. The substance is barley, grown and malted in places like
the Black Isle. This staff of life is transformed from the mundane
to the magical by the mountain water, the blossoming heather, the
burning peat and the westerly winds. According to legend, the
whisky of Scotland was brought from Northern Ireland to the
Scottish island of Iona--but it is now being rediscovered in the
single-malt bars around the world.
In Scotland and Its Whiskies, Michael Jackson, the world's leading
writer on whisky, makes his own distillation of the magical spirit.
He relives his love affair with whisky through a tour of the
countryside of Scotland and the bars of Edinburgh.
