Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Packed with stunning, full-color photographs of distilleries, tasting rooms, undulating landscapes, and dazzlingly lit bottles, this attractive coffee-table reference details the tasting notes and histories of 150 whiskies produced around the globe. Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Award winner Broom (Handbook of Whisky) divides the book by region, beginning with the renowned Scottish clusters, highlands, lowlands, and islands and continuing through Ireland, Japan, America, and Canada. Nearly 30 pages are devoted to whiskies distilled in Europe, India, South Africa, and Australia. A perfect complement to Dominic Roskrow's expansive The World's Best Whiskies, which includes distiller interviews.
Eric Asimov
…makes a powerful and evocative case for geography as an organizing principle for understanding whiskey in its world. The book is clearly written, up-to-date and beautifully rendered, with concise descriptions of land, distilleries and the whiskeys themselves.
—The New York Times
