This is the 12th edition of the book about “the facts, the people, the news, the stories” relating to Whisky by Ingvar Ronde.
The latest edition is coming out at the end of this month and can be purchased already through sites such as Amazon.
This is one of my own reference books for the industry, I always look forward to reading it every autumn and have done so for quite a while now as there is always something new to read about and enjoy. As per the description of the book online:
Distinguished whisky experts contribute with new features written exclusively for this new edition along with details of hundreds of whisky shops, whisky sites and new bottlings. The Independent Bottlers chapter gives you all the details about the world’s most successful blenders and bottlers complete with tasting notes. A comprehensive summary of the whisky year that was and all the latest statistics is also included.
In terms of Loch Lomond Group, it includes information on both the Glen Scotia and Loch Lomond distilleries and also on Littlemill distillery which no longer exists.
Plus there is also an interesting article from the leading whisky writer Gavin D Smith on Scotch grain whisky right at the front of the book, including a picture of Loch Lomond distillery (below) and contribution from our Master Blender, Michael Henry.
