You've set yourself a task there, that's a rare book. As an aside he lives in New Zealand and is an avid collector of scotch whisky related items off of ebay. I beleive he's also an accountant.

I've seen copies in quite a few second hand bookshops in Scotland - generally in the UK£10 to £20 price range. It's a very useful reference book.

Hmmm, are you seeing the other book he wrote "The Schweppes Guide to Scotch"? it's the more common version. Let me know if you would because I'm looking for a copy of the other also.

Oops. You're right Lawrence - I didn't read the original post with due care.

I'll keep an eye open for his The Whisky Distilleries of Scotland & Ireland. Was that the (leather bound?) edition of Barnard for which he provided an intro? I don't think many were published - and I know many of those that do exist, were presented to high heid yins in the whisky business.

As an aside he lives in New Zealand


Actually, unless he has moved in the last 12 months, (which I confess could be possible) he actually lives here in Sydney. He and I meet up occasionally at SMWS meetings, although he has missed the last few meetings, so as I say, perhaps he has crossed the Tasman Sea. (That being the body of water that separates Australia and New Zealand! :) )

I can probably get in touch with him reasonably easily if you like?

Philip actually presented an interesting and entertaining plenary lecture at the 2003 Australian Malt Whisky Convention where he led us through the journey he went on in re-tracing Barnard. (Which is what the book you're enquiring about is all about!)

Cheers,
Admiral

Dear Admiral,
I would not mind if you could get in touch with him and to know where I could find one copy of its book.


Cheers

Corbuso,

It looks like Lawrence has located some copies for you.

If you are still unsuccessful, I have Philip's post office box address where you can write to him directly, if necessary.

Send me a Private Message if required.

Hi Lawrence,
Thank you for the link, but the link was unfortunately for the Schweppes guide and not the "Whisky Distilleries of Scotland", a very hard to find book!

Will need his address

Postby corbuso » Thu Oct 20, 2005 8:23 am

Hi Admiral,
Could you please send me his post office box address? Everyone is mixing the "Schweppes guide" he wrote with the "Whisky Distilleries of Scotland".

Thank you

Probably desperately out of date now but you can buy Morrice's tribute to Barnard here - £425 though!!

http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/acatal ... S_159.html

I would be interested in Philip Morrice's contact details if someone would like to private message them to me. Thanks.

Admiral is in contact with him, he's your best bet, perhaps a PM will do the trick.

That would be nice if the book would be reprinted. I had a look at the Whiskyexchange, but I have no wishes to spend the £400 they are asking for. Hopefully, someone will reprint it .

Wow, that's a heck of a lot better than £400!
