“The GreatDrams of Scotland is a lot more relaxed, it is a collection of personal tales, brand stories and historical anecdotes that should take readers on a journey of ‘aha’ moments and smiles in equal measures. This is for anyone remotely interested in whisky, and those looking to learn a bit more as it is written in a way that should convey the gravitas of these brands and distilleries, whilst at the same time explaining the brilliance of Scotch’s rich history.” Greg Dillon

I read this book in one sitting and enjoyed it very much. This is one of those books for anyone interested in Scotch whisky, whether a novice and new to the golden nectar or for those who are not so new to the category and product. Definitely recommend it as Greg makes it a very easy and enjoyable read!
Personally, having worked in the drinks industry for a while now, it was fascinating to recognise quite a few of the stories mentioned, such as the story of Charlie Gordon from the family behind William Grant & Sons, justifying the trade cost increase of Glenfiddich at his yacht…or the familiarity of places mentioned in the book such as Easter Elchies House at The Macallan Distillery or working at Laphroaig’s peat bog on Islay (below picture was when I did it quite a few years back).
