This book takes the language of whisky as seriously as whisky drinking. There's much to savour and enjoy in the astonishingly rich vocabulary of distilling and tasting explored here, and the book offers international hospitality to the language of whisky, whether the terms come from Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, the United States, England or Japan. The history and specialist vocabulary of whisky distillation are recorded, and the terms and processes that have their origins in Scots or Irish Gaelic are fully examined. This is a book for the connoisseur. It will also entertain anyone with a lively palate, a curious tongue and a robust liver.
