In Whisky Island*, Andrew Jefford uncovers Islay's fascinating story: from its history and stories of the many shipwrecks which litter its shores, to the beautiful wildlife, landscape and topography of the island. Interleaved through these different narrative strands comes the story of the whiskies themselves, traced from a distant past of bothies and illegal stills to present-day legality and prosperity. The flavour of each spirit is analysed and the differences between them teased out, as are the stories of the notable men and women who have played such a integral part in their creation.

Author: Andrew Jefford

Softcover, 406 pages.
