This book is at once a celebration of that uisge-beatha, or water of life, that sacred distillation from the grain, whose secret was handed down by their wise Celtic ancestors to enliving and enlighten the Gaels; and a lament for ancient skills and ancient rituals defiled by the conquerors, who first transformed the 'drink made in a man's home' into an 'affair of public manufacture', then saw in it a source of tax and revenue for foreign coffers, and banned the pot stills from Highland homes altogether. The author in this witty, indignant little book tells what is known of the history of whisky, describes its making and maturing, and instructs the drinker on how to distinguish a good pot-still from a patent blend. 'A single whisky', he assured his readers forty year ago, 'can still be got by those geniuinely concerned to find it', and he lists some of the great names to delight lovers of 'the real stuff'. Most of these names can still be searched out today. This book is a book for lovers of good whisky, and for lovers of a Gaelic way of living and being which is not yet beyond recall. 198 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions, and all types of Academic Literature. )
