Discovering Scotland’s Distilleries

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Discovering Scotland's DistilleriesDiscovering Scotland’s Distilleries is a book wirtten by Gavin D. Smith with pictures by Graeme Wallace.

It’s a handy guide and probably the first true tourist’s companion focusing on distilleries. It’s well-written with concise information about the distilleries, with a big focus on their visitor facilities: a short description of what they provide, different tours, written guides, contact information, timetables, admission fees etc. The small space for the date of visit and the signature of the distillery manager is a nice idea!

The first 70 pages are about whisky trails, major cities and transportation between different regions.

Apart from the short distillery histories or the descriptions of the house styles, it’s not a book you’d want to read at bedtime. It’s really a guide with practical info for those planning a tour of Scotland. Therefore it relies on up-to-date information and will often need a revision (with the year of publishing on the cover maybe?).

A must-have when you’re going on a distillery trip.
