This is the story of a war! A war between a hostile London government and an army of cottage whisky-makers, mostly in the Highlands of Scotland. These Highlanders believed they had a natural right to make "Uisge Bea" - literally "the water of life" - from their own barley just as they made porridge from their own oats. This book offers a collection of stories from the "Peatreek Conflict", which are a mixture of humour and tragedy but which aim to illustrate the indomitable spirit of the Highlander and the importance of Whisky in Scottish culture.
