SPIRIT OF PLACE

This wide-ranging and evocative photographic portrait of Scotland's distilleries, from Talisker to Lagavulin, from Laphroaig to Dalwhinnie, from the Isle of Arran to Glenkinchie, describes the "cultural terroir" of the country's fifty greatest distilleries – the ingredients, practices, and traditions that result in an exquisite range of single-malt whiskies.
 
Over 250 specially commissioned photographs capture the texture of the surrounding landscapes through the changing seasons, vividly portray the craftsmen who work there, and detail the fabric of the buildings themselves.
