Picturing Scotland: Distinguished Distilleries
Content: Scotland's distilleries are an integral part of the country's history and an engine of its economy. This book takes you on an illustrated tour of 53 of the most notable distilleries, from Campbeltown in the south-west to Orkney in the far north, with many mainland establishments in between. It is created both for the armchair traveller and for those touring Scotland with the particular aim of visiting the many distilleries that welcome visitors. Each one will tell you its stories and share its secrets. Each presentation is unique but each one shares its passion for the 'water of life'. Since this book was first published, Scotland has seen a renaissance in gin distilling, with many new, mostly small 'craft distillers', opening up. So to acknowledge and keep abreast of this development, three of these have been included in this edition.
