Being a bibliophile when it comes to whisky books I bought this when it first came out in 2004/05 then just dumped it on the ever growing pile. I assumed it would be full of marketing. On picking it up recently I was very pleased to find a well written book by a clutch of different authors. Jumping from familiar names in whisky writing circles to members of staff at William Grant and other worthies a balance was struck between writing styles and experience. The detail paid attention to in the varying topics is a refreshing change from the same old material. Particularly illuminating for me were the passages on sherry and grain distillation.
I'm not sure if this is still available, from distillery only I believe, it may even have been updated.
I don't like to make recommendations as people's tastes, budgets and needs all differ but I think this title deserves a good look.
