Product Description

Review

A most interesting book on the ambrosia, staple sine qua non of hospitality. New York Times Brilliant. Clearly a labour of love. The Daily Telegraph A very readable book written with that tenderness which springs from nostalgic familiarity while giving so much interesting information. A very human book; also a humorous one. The Sunday Times

About the Author

Robert Bruce Lockhart (1887-1970) had an extraordinarily varied life and is widely believed to be the inspiration for James Bond. Primarily a diplomat, he held posts in the Foreign Office serving in Russia during WW1 where he was accused of plotting to assassinate Lenin and imprisoned in the Kremlin until exchanged for Litvinov. He then served in Czechoslovakia and worked in the late 20s for Beaverbrook Newspapers until he took up writing full time. He returned to the FO in WW2 were he was Director-General of Political Warfare. He returned successfully to writing after the war and had a prolific output until he died in 1970.

Format: Kindle Edition
A revealing insight into how malts were made (both legally and illicitly) in bygone years. Many of the company names may be unfamiliar to today's malt fans; however this remains compulsory reading for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of the history of Scotland's malts. Lockhart's gentle prose is interspersed with humourous anecdotes which reveal the human aspects of the Highlanders' love affair with pure malt. A gentle yet always interesting meander through the first half of the last century and the passions which fuelled the expansion of malts from blending stock to their first introductions into the premier league of spirits.

A must have for the whisky enthusiast, one of the historic accounts about the Scottish whisky industry, some facts are outdated but the book is still some sort of resource book. The Gateway to Distilleries.

A little dated , but a fun read on the history of Scotch ...maybe too much reminiscing as you lose the shape of how the industry evolves occasionally

Personal but Informative breakdown of the history of blending and the rise and fall of whisky production in Scotland up to the 1950s.

Comprehensive and well written. A worthwhile contribution to the understanding of the national drink. Long may it continue to raise a dram.
