Good malt whisky, brewed and distilled in the time-honored way excites the same appreciation as fine wine. This witty, erudite, and often lyrical toast to the Celts' "water of life" shares the fascinating history and lore surrounding the art of whisky distilling. The book travels back to whiskey's ancient roots among the Celts and laments the passing of rituals that were handed down until Scotland's conquerors transformed the drink made in a man's home into a public affair ripe for taxation and regulation. Describing in loving detail the process of malting, distilling, and maturing, the author explains how to recognize a good pot still from a patent blend.
