Postby goul-from-britany » Wed Mar 13, 2002 5:20 pm

Hi,
I have a cultural project to do on "the whisky trade", and i want to know what exactly i have to put in, like: the history, the fabrication..
The problem is that i don`t fine good articules on the trade, and i don't know if i have to speak about the whisky from all aover the world or juste the UK's one?

Hi Goul

In order for people to help you, can you say more about the exact brief you have been given for your project? What kind of university department / school / institute / whatever are you in? What 'cultural' aspect is expected by your tutors?

There are many many books and articles about all kinds of aspects of whisky, so help us help you by pinning down what you're after!

Cheers, Lex

Try these sources:

Barr A, 1995. Drink - a social history. Pimlico, London.
Hume JR & Moss MS, 2000. The Making of Scotch Whisky. Canongate Books, Edinburgh.
Weir RB, 1984. Distilling and agriculture 1870-1939. Agricultural History Review 32: 49-62.
Wilson R, 1970. Scotch, the formative years. Constable, London.

Good luck!

Hi Goul,

I found an interesting website concerning whisky-trade worldwide.
Look at www.scotch-whisky.org.uk

Don´t forget the touristic aspect of the whisky trade (Maybe you can get some info about the increasing number of tourists coming to Scotland just for visiting distilleries at the scotish tourist board).
