Islay is the magical island in Scotland's Southern Hebrides that boasts eight active distilleries, countless world renowned single malts and its own whisky classification, protected by Scots law.

This book is a celebration of the whiskies of Islay and of the beautiful island that shaped them. With a population of just over 3,000, Islay produces some of the finest whiskies in the world. It is perhaps best known for its smoky, phenolic spirits, such as Laphroaig, Lagavulin, and Ardbeg. These have been distilled in rocky coves off Islay's sheltered east coast for at least 200 years, and probably much longer. But in truth Islay produces a dram for every palette, and its vibrant and expanding whisky industry is a constant source of renewed excellence and taste innovation.

Review:
'...it is worth highlighting this book as one to look out for when it hits the shelves... not only educational and fun but a visual treat for the eyes that made me want to have an Islay dram whilst reading it. Cheers!' --Press and Journal

'Beautifully illustrated.' --The Drinks Business
From the Back Cover:
Islay and Jura are the mystical, magical islands in Scotland's Inner Hebrides that boast nine active distilleries, countless world renowned blends and malts and their own whisky classification, protected by Scots law. This book is a celebration of the whiskies of Islay and Jura, and of the islands that shaped them. With a population of just over 3,000 between them, Islay and Jura produce some of the finest whiskies in the world. Islay is perhaps best known for smoky, phenolic spirits, such as Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. These have been distilled in its rocky coves of the sheltered east coast for more than 200 years. But in truth Islay and Jura produce a dram for every palette, and their vibrant and expanding whisky industry is a constant source of renewed excellence and taste innovation. Fiona Rintoul, an award-winning novelist, translator, journalist and whisky enthusiast, provides a background and history to the islands and their distilling, alongside tasting notes on the main malts and blends. Konrad Borkowski, who lives on Jura, provides stunning full color photographs, documenting each distillery at work through the seasons.
