Chambers Scottish Drink Book, Whisky, Beer, Wine and Soft Drinks
Edinburgh: Chambers, 1990 First edition. Blue cloth 25x20 cm, gilt, col and bw plates, index Pagination: 128. Scotland and Scotch are indeed synonymous in the popular mind, but a host of different kinds of drinks have been distilled, brewed and manufactured in the land since water was first drawn and herbs added to liven it up.<P>Few realise the rich complexity of the picture. In times not so long past, practically every Scottish town and village had its own distillery for whisky, brewery for beer and locally manufactured soft drinks delivered by horse and cart. The ports were busy with trade, local agriculture provided the raw ingredients, and local industry satisfied the need for bottles, barrels and other implements. A wealth of lore, language and secret recipes abounded and, as a result, contemporary Scotland has inherited a legacy of regional taste and national variation.<P>It is this rich inheritance which the book documents and brings to life. Contents: Water, the essential link; Wine and the Auld Alliance; Beer, a proud tradition; Whisky, quality of Scotland. Book: extremities v sl bumped, hint of yellowing to margins of a few pages, VG, Jacket: unclipped, a little edge creasing, VG (Book ref. 3034) £14.00
