As a lover of good whisky I found this book very interesting. The efforts made to overcome an unfair law led to amusing,and some times tragic incidents. Now I want to get some ordnance survey maps and visit these locations. A great wee book to help you reflect on a rarely covered aspect of history.

I found this wee book a pleasure to read and enjoyed the happy moments as well as the tragic. Being Scottish, I was rather sad at the thought of a tax being imposed on a people who, in some areas, depended on the sale of aqua-vitae to live. I enjoyed it just as much as The Secret Still. Scotland's Clandestine Whisky Makers, even although descriptive detail was not as in-depth. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in how the highlands of Scotland came to be the home of Scottish whisky and why those roots grew to an international industry. It came with the first Alembic still being brought to Scotland, carried on with a recipe for success and ended with the murderous theft of a beverage that could not be made south of the border...

Truly a great read, Tales of Whisky and Smuggling and The Secret Still. Scotland's Clandestine Whisky Makers go hand in hand...
Just as my grandfather described the history to me, 5 Stars...
