Author Tom Bruce-Gardyne’s outstanding book ‘The Scotch Whisky Treasures‘ will make an excellent gift for anyone who loves whisky this Christmas – whether they are occasional tipplers, tasters or connoisseurs.
Uisge beatha, the Gaelic name for whisky, literally translates as ‘the water of life’. Bruce-Gardyne, a Scotsman considering growing up with Scotch Whisky a blessing, believes this to be the perfect starting point for enjoying whisky.
In ‘The Scotch Whisky Treasures’, he takes a journey through whisky distillation history; talks about the most famous men in whisky history and how their passion is reflected in the special malts they created and acts as an informed guide on tours around Scotland’s main whisky regions, including, for instance, the Highlands, Speyside, and the Western Isles; the Lowlands and Campbeltown.
He also visits some of Scotch whisky production’s greatest names, from Glenlivet, Ardbeg and Glenmorangie to Balvenie, Talisker and an array of other brands (a total of over 80 brands are available). Providing truly unique insights into Scotch whisky, this interactive book has an added bonus – it contains 20 removable facsimile memorabilia items whisky lovers will treasure.
Packed with stunning photographs, artworks and maps, ‘The Scotch Whisky Treasures’ is more than just a book about whisky – it is a journey through one of the most loved drinks in the world and an excellent read that truly reflects the love and passion with which it was written. Well worth its price, it will make a wonderful Christmas present not only for whisky lovers, but for anyone who loves a good read. Highly recommended.
