About the Author

Ian Buxton has been working in and around the drinks industry for close to 30 years, but has been drinking professionally for a good deal longer. He writes in a variety of trade and consumer titles here and abroad.


'a knowledgeable and lively writer'

* West Highland Free Press *

'You will learn far more in this offbeat odyssey than in a hundred more straightforward whisky books'

* Guardian Best Drinks Books 2017 *

'A delightful grand tour of island distilleries'

* Sunday Post *

'A fascinating new book'

* The Spectator *

'A tour, an investigation, a fact finding mission, done with the utmost geniality by a man whose blood is most probably a pale amber hue... you can almost smell the peat, hear the clink of glasses and see the wind on the heather!'

-- Sue Baker * *

'A delightful grand tour of island distilleries. A great read: it mixes childhood recollections, laments about Hebridean weather, historical anecdotes and 101 astute, humorous observations'

-- Brian Townsend * Dundee Courier *

'Ian Buxton is one of the country's best known and most prolific whisky writers and he writes on the subject with a fondness and knowledge, not to mention humour, which comes from a lifetime surrounded by whisky. His relaxed and conversational style makes the book a very enjoyable read'

* The Ileach *

'If you've read any of Bill Bryson's books you'll understand exactly where Ian's coming from ... Full of interest for whisky lovers and non-lovers alike - funny stories and full of obscure nerdy information from an expert in the field'

* Malt Musings *

'This is unlike any other whisky book yet published, and better than most!'

-- Charles MacLean

'something special, too, about this fascinating book ... All in all, this is the real thing - a single malt of a book - a lovely and loving read'

-- Alexander McCall Smith

'Sardonic, unsentimental and often very funny ... the most original drink book I've read in a long time ... this book will make you love Scotch whisky all the more'

-- Henry Jeffreys, prize-winning author of Empire of Booze

'his often hilarious travelogue mercilessly exposes cant, yet his profound love of these extraordinary places and our spirits is never in doubt'

-- Carl Reavey, Bruichladdich Distillery
