Product Description

Details

The Whisky Dictionary is both a celebration of the world of whisky and a window into it. Iain Hector Ross has ranged deep, far and wide into the industry to capture whisky speak in a single guide. He has literally climbed inside the distilling process to feel the heat, savour the aromas and absorb the words that swirl around the making and sharing of Scotch whisky. Now this language itself has been ‘casked' between the covers of this delightful guide, and whisky enthusiasts the world over can understand, explore and enjoy Scotch in all its wondrous diversity in a single publication.

Press Reviews

‘More than anything, this book represents a map of the language used to describe the creation, marketing and enjoyment of whisky... This is a perfect Christmas gift for any whisky fan, and a delightful, if slightly unwieldy way to learn about the history, creation, and enjoyment of Scotch whisky.'

‘An unusual and humorous dictionary of place names, terms,places and whisky folklore accompanied by delightful illustrations by artist Ben Averis. Ross leaves no stone unturned and has presented a book that will delight both aficionados and beginners.'

‘A wonderful work of reference that should be on the Christmas list of anyone who has someone in their life who loves whisky.'

‘Ross knows that of which he writes, and his dictionary informs, educates and thoroughly entertains as he explains both the science and the mythology of Scotland's national drink.'

‘Impressively informative and presented in an alphabetical format, "The Whiskey Dictionary" is an extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, and academic library collections.'

‘Informative, entertaining and passionate, the Whisky Dictionary is a unique guide to the special vocabulary shared by whisky makers and whisky lovers the world over.'

‘ Indispensable...'
