In this beautifully crafted book, award-winning writer Dave Broom examines Scotch whisky’s links to landscape, agriculture, culture, and community. Starting in Orkney, he travels south via the north-east coast and the Spey valley, to the westerly peninsulas and Hebridean islands of Skye, Raasay and Harris, before the journey finishes, via the blenders of the central belt, on the island of Islay.

The trip also follows Scotch’s history from Neolithic brewers to today’s innovators – a tale told by distillers, but also musicians, writers and poets. What does it mean to make whisky in these places, how does a distillery reflect place in its flavour, and what is its role in communities?

With stunning specially commissioned photography by Christina Kernohan, A Sense of Place will enhance and deepen every whisky drinker’s, and lover of Scotland’s, understanding of the spirit, and the country.
