The Art of Whisky

Paperback - Food / Beverages/Alcoholic/Whiskey. The making of whisky is an art in itself—distilling, ageing in cask, blending, all for the enjoyment of lovers of the complex blend or the noble single malt. But another art form is rediscovered in The Art of Whisky. With the charming naivety of an industry still in its infancy, these distinctive and highly-prized posters and showcards spread through the British Empire and the rest of the world with the aid of kilted Scotsmen with flaming beards and Irishmen dressed invariably in green. The story of whisky's rise from its beginnings in hidden pot stills to its public perception as a refined and stylish drink for all classes by the turn of the twentieth century is chronicled in a short introductory history.
