For the whisky enthusiast who cares as deeply about it as any oenophile does about wine, Whisky is a passionate, instructive, historical book that illuminates the great history of the transfixing spirit. First published in 1930, Aeneas Macdonald’s Whisky is considered a classic of whisky writing--a small, passionate, polemical, and informative gem of a book. The earliest book on the subject from the drinker’s point of view, it’s both a useful buying companion and an homage to the world’s most exclusive spirit. More than just a guide to whisky, this is an essential book for buffs and a fantastic read for those of us whose whisky knowledge only extends to not putting mixers in a malt. This little book began whisky’s renaissance. MacDonald’s sense of what it means to be Scottish, his passionate discussion of why whisky--especially good whisky--matters, and his notes on how, when, and why to drink whisky are indispensable. Remarkably, Whisky has never been reprinted in America. This commemorative edition includes an introduction by renowned whisky writer Ian Buxton and a foreword by Charlie MacLean (author of MacLean’s Whisky Miscellany ).

‘Hard not to hate Rachel McCormack who bags the best gig of the year and then writes a brilliant book’ Val McDermid Whisky is Scotland's national drink and has been for over five hundred years, since then becoming a global phenomenon. It is a drink that is a profound and important part of Scottish life and culture but, unlike other countries and their national libations, it has hardly been used in food. Rachel McCormack is going to change that with this book. Limiting whisky to a drink, she believes, is similar to the traditional Presbyterian attitude to sex; it should only be done with the lights off and in the missionary position. Rachel believes that there is an entire Karma Sutraof whisky use out there and she has put it in this book. Interspersing an engaging mix of anecdotes, history and information on distillers and recipes, this book will appeal to everyone from the cooking whisky connoisseur, to the novice whisky learner looking for some guidance on what to eat and cook. Rachel travels the length and breadth of Scotland, discovering a myriad of unique and interesting people and facts about this remarkable drink, with interviews with the key people who create it around the country, as she visits the famous distilleries of her country, as well as the more home-grown variety.

WHISKY is not only the world's most consistently successful and popular drink, it is also one of the oldest, having been around in one form or another since the first millennium. However, documentary records only commence in Scotland in 1494 when it was distilled as a spirit known as aqua vitae. Its growth since then has been better detailed and a complete lexicon has developed in line with whisky's increasing sophistication and worldwide popularity. The A to Z of Whisky is designed for whisky enthusiasts, lovers of Scotland, academics, journalists, amateur historians, broadcasters and researchers who need to have all the relevant facts and references about whisky close to hand. The entries cover every possible aspect of the spirit (including the American, Canadian and Irish derivatives) from aftershots to zymurgy, and include those curious terms which often crop up in the world of whisky, such as:viscimetry 'Viscimation is what happens when two liquids of different viscosity mix, creating eddies and visible threads or ribbons. These are referred to as viscimetric whorls ... The most commonly observed instance of viscimetry is where water is added to spirituous alcohol, especially whisky, where the colour makes the effect more observable. Since time immemorial, whisky-drinkers have referred to the phenomenon as "awakening the serpent".' (MacLean, MMoW) In Whisky Magazine, Issue 56, July 2006, Dave Broom writes of Ichiro's Malt 1988 King of Diamonds, 'This has classic Japanese finesse (and excellent viscimetry). Great whisky is about balance and this has it ... in diamonds, not spades.' But this is no dry, didactic reference tome. It is crammed full of anecdote, aside and comment, a great deal of it tongue-in-cheek. This makes using the A-Z of Whisky both an informative and entertaining task. 'I cannot recommend it too highly,' Charles MacLean, whisky writer and author of the Mitchell Beazley Pocket Whisky Book.
