Scots On Scotch: The Book Of Whisky

This is a book in which Scots tell the truth about their country and their national drink. Ignoring the mythology that surrounds Scotland and her favorite tipple, it is written by people who are passionate about their subject, who know what they write about, and who love what they know. It’s about whisky and about Scotland—the real Scotland behind the invented images of the advertisers and gift shops. Over the last 40 years, Scots have reasserted their cultural independence, and, as part of this process, they have rediscovered the unique quality of their national drink. This renaissance is cause for celebration—malt whiskies have become internationally recognized as the connoisseur’s spirit par excellence. Contributors to this pleasurable volume include Trevor Royal, Derek Cooper, Hugh MacDiarmid, and Norman MacCaig.
