The Gaelic word for whisky is Uisge beatha, which translates literally as "the water of life". Written by a Scotsman who considers it a blessing to grow up with Scotch whisky, The Scotch Whisky Treasures is a great starting place to understand the whisky you enjoy, whether you aspire to be a connoisseur, taster or an occasional tippler.
Tom Bruce-Gardyne describes not only about the history of whisky distillation, the famous men whose passion can be found in their special malts, but also acts as a guide of the main whisky regions of Scotland, visiting some of the greatest names in the production of Scotch: The Glenlivet, Ardbeg, Glenmorangie, Balvenie, Talisker, among others.
The Scotch Whisky Treasureshas the added bonus — alongside stunning photographs, maps and artworks — of 20 facsimile memorabilia items which can be removed from the book. It makes this interactive volume a truly unique insight into Scotch whisky, one of the world's most loved drinks.
