History of Scotch Whisky

Whisky is the national drink of Scotland, and the most popular spirit in the world: it is a multi-billion dollar industry employing thousands globally and one of the UK's leading exports. Yet, it is more, much more than this; it's a story - a story of a drink, a culture, a people, a land and a way of life. From the humblest of origins, to the glamorous world of ‘Mad Men' Scotch has come a long way, and it is a fascinating tale. So, with glass in hand we will begin that journey and explore the origins of spirit, its eventual arrival into Scotland and how the process was refined and perfected to the malts and blends we enjoy today. We will also stare through the looking glass of time to the people who made whisky so popular; the fight against government and taxmen; halcyon days and the dark days; its global reach with roots still firmly planted in the hills and glens of rural Scotland. I'll explain how the stuff is actually made, where it is made and how geography as well as history has had a part to play in whisky's development. How is Scotch different to Bourbon or Irish, and how have their stories differed and related to our saga? There are quirky stories, interesting characters and the mystery of the lost distilleries to illuminate us as we unravel the secret of the Water of Life. Cheers! The presenter is David McNicoll, a self-professed expert on whisky. Seriously though, Davis is an expert. He has worked with a number of Scotch brands as Ambassador in New York City; he owns a travel business that specialises in Scottish historical, clan and whisky tourism; and, he has recently published a book called: The Language of Whisky.
