Who wrote these lines?

Hi,

any idea who wrote the following lines? I need it for a quiz. "Formerly the young tops of the heather are said to have been used alone to brew a kind of ale, and even now I was informed that the inhabitants of Islay and Jura still continue to brew a very potable liquor by mixing twi-thirds of the tops of heather to one third of malt."
Thanx

Alfred Barnard?
