'Superb regional guide ... Shots of the distilleries combine with wonderful landscape photography' Country Life
'Mr MacLean serves up dram after dram of useful detail... This is armchair travel at its best' Wall Street Journal

A new handbook sized editon of Spirit of Place, a wide-ranging and evocative portrait of Scotland's distilleries, with text by renowned whisky expert Charles MacLean and photographs by Lara Platman and Alan MacDonald.

Treating Scotland as eight distinct regions, this fascinating book describes the 'cultural terroir' of the country's fifty greatest distilleries; the ingredients, practices and traditions that result in such an exquisite range of whiskies. Specially commissioned photographs capture the texture of the surrounding landscapes and communities through the changing seasons, as well as portraits of those craftsmen who work there, and the fabric of the buildings themselves.

Spirit of Place is a unique addition to the literature on Scotch whisky, from the world's greatest expert on the subject. The perfect gift for anyone planning a tour of Scotland's distilleries, a souvenir for anyone who has visited them, and simply the perfect companion to a dram at home.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Spirit of Place is a lavishly illustrated tour of 50 classic distilleries - many you've heard of and some you haven't. The coffee table book explores the heritage of moor and peat, from the Lowlands to the brooding, misty islands, and Mr. MacLean serves up dram after dram of useful detail ... But it's the captivating photographs by Lara Platman and Allan MacDonald that gave me a implacable thirst. ... This is armchair travel at its best - even if it's only as far as the cabinet for a refill."
