Présentation de l'éditeur
In 1885, Alfred Barnard was charged with the task of visiting and reporting on every active Whisky distillery throughout Scotland, Ireland and England. It took him two exhaustive years. In this book you will see the distilleries through his eyes. His detailed descriptions of every step in the distilling process is work that remains unparalleled to this day. But that's only part of the story. As he and his companions traveled the countryside, he fell in love with Scotland and all its grandeur as well as the lush landscapes of Ireland. As you read through this book - presented as an ebook for the very first time - you'll fall in love, as well. Part technical document and part travelogue, you're almost getting two books in one intertwined volume. Presented in plain, readable and fully searchable text, the words and images stand up on their own merit and will transport you to a Victorian adventure that was, is and always will be one of a kind.
This edition does not contain some of the additional writings of Alfred Barnard and advertising images that are found in recent print editions, just the text of his original book. There are two additional chapters from later writings that give added detail for the Glenglassaugh and Glenfarclas Distilleries.
