As satisfying as a tumbler of single malt on a rainy afternoon, this spectacular tour across the Scottish landscape shows how the country's premier whisky-makers are creating exquisite beverages using new models of responsible stewardship for their five-hundred-year-old industry. Horst A. Friedrichs and Stuart Husband are masters of visual storytelling, plumbing their subjects' sumptuous depths with arresting photography and evocative texts. Now they turn their attention to scotch whisky, undertaking a road trip of 8,000 miles across Scotland to understand the world's obsession with this iconic elixir. Each distillery is introduced with Husband's engaging texts and illustrated with Friedrich's luscious photographs of the people who work there, the breathtaking scenery, the machinery, barrels, fields, grains, copper, and glassware that go into making fine scotch.
