A fascinating journey through Scotland's famous distilleries with legendary author Iain Banks No true Scotsman can resist the allure of the nation's whisky distilleries. In an absorbing voyage as interesting to non-drinkers as to true whisky connoisseurs, sci-fi and literary author Iain Banks explores the rich heritage of Scottish whisky, from the largest and most famous distilleries to the smallest, most obscure operations. Whisky is more than a drink: it's a culture, a binder that joins together people, places and products far across Scotland's rugged terrain. Switching from cars to ferries to bicycles, Banks crisscrosses his homeland, weaving an engrossing narrative from the strange people, fascinating traditions, and downright bizarre places he encounters on his journey down Scotland's great golden road.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It does what every good book should manage to do, and what a hundred other books on whisky (and a thousand other books on Scotland) have signally failed to do: makes you want to go for a drink with the author." * Observer *
"Studded with bracing shots of pure insight and eloquence. And he's sound on the scotch as well." * Independent *
"A very readable and hugely informative book, and Bank's gentle humour permeates the pages." * Time Out *
"It's an engaging piece of work, part love letter, part memoir." * Esquire *
"A very beguiling fusion of memoir, history and current affairs." * Glasgow Herald *
