Summary

An innovative, captivating tour of the finest whiskies the world has to offer, brought to you by bestselling author and whisky connoisseur Tristan Stephenson.

In his characteristically engaging, witty style, Tristan explores the origins of whiskey, from the extraordinary Chinese distillation pioneers well over 2,000 years ago to the discovery of the medicinal ‘aqua vitae’ (water of life), through to the emergence of what we know as whiskey. Explore the magic of malting, the development of flavor and the astonishing barrel-aging process as you learn about how whiskey is made. In the main chapter, Tristan takes us on a journey through 56 distilleries around the world, exploring their remarkable quirks, unique techniques and flavors, featuring all new location photography from the Scottish Highlands and Ireland to Kentucky and Tennessee. After that, you might choose to make the most of Tristan’s formidable bar skills with some inspirational whiskey-based blends and cocktails. This fascinating and comprehensive book is sure to appeal to whiskey and bourbon aficionados and novices alike.
