Whiskies Galore: A Tour of Scotland’s Island Distilleries by Ian Buxton

While the Scottish mainland has given the world many notable whiskies, there is much to be said about those that come from the islands. Their remoteness, coupled with a unique heritage and mystique, allow for an interesting story to be told, and Ian Buxton does so here.

Buxton combines spirits writing with travel writing and the reader follows his personal journey across the islands. On his travels he encounters a basking shark, learns to fish with high explosives and even has time to teach us a thing or two about the distinctive whiskies of the Scottish islands.

Whiskies Galore: A Tour of Scotland’s Island Distilleries is available now.
