About the Author

Born in Thaxted, England in 1837, Alfred Barnard will always be most noted for his landmark book, "The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom" written as a result of his travels to each distillery from 1885 to 1887. This assignment came to his as he was the Secretary for Harper's Weekly Gazette, a wine and spirits trade publication based in London. He enjoyed a great amount of professional success with this company. He went on to perform a similar tour of the breweries throughout the UK as well as several other writings on Scotch Whisky and the distilleries that produce it.

He married his wife, Fanny, in 1859 and they brought three children into the world. Their two daughters were Theodora and Edith and their son was Harold who followed his father into the offices at Harper's in 1901 as a clerk. He outlived his son, his daughter Theodora and his wife. Alfred Barnard passed away in May of 1918.

Aaron Barker is a Single Malt Scotch enthusiast, engineer and cyclist. Counting Mortlach, Glenfarclas, Scapa and Glen Garioch among his favorite distilleries, he lives in Carmel, Indiana with his lovely wife Jennifer and 2 daughters.
