Whisky - DK Publishing

Whether it's Scottish, Irish, North American or Japanese, whisky is the world's most widely consumed spirit. Enthusiasts love its aromas and flavours. The pleasures afforded by whisky are intense and long lasting.<br /><br />Want to know the story behind the aromas and flavours of whisky? <br />Want to know why a whisky tastes as it does?<br /><br />With specially commissioned photographs of distillery interiors and locations - from the heather-clad hills of Speyside to the forested countryside of Kentucky - Whisky by Michael Jackson beautifully captures the atmosphere and essence of the whisky world.<br /><br />With a handpicked team of fellow whisky writers, Jackson has produced the most authoritative book on whisky ever. Divided into four sections: understanding whisky, the aromas and flavours and their origin, the countries, the distilleries, the whiskies and using whisky. These chapters delve into the stories behind whisky and how it varies between distilleries and how the forces of nature, such as snow and wind can influence the final drink itself.<br /><br />Michael Jackson's personal appearances attract full houses the world over. His tutored tastings, in cities such as London, New York, San Francisco and Tokyo have introduced thousands to the civilised pleasures of whisky. 'The Whisky Chaser' has written many books and is the author of The Malt Whisky Companion, also published by DK. He has won five Glenfiddich Awards, including the 1999 Glenfiddich Drinks Writer of the Year
