From the Back Cover:

?Lockhart's book has long been regarded as a whisky classic. Including the fully updated and revised foreword written by his late son in 1995, this book covers some of the lesser-known episodes in the industry's history these include the author's family's involvement with Balmenach Distillery on Speyside, the polemics of the Scots, their relationship with whisky, and where it might be heading. The book is considered essential reading for the whisky enthusiast. This edition has a publisher's note that outlines the main changes to the whisky industry in the last 15 years.

About the Author:

Robert Bruce Lockhart (1887-1970) had an extraordinarily varied life and is widely believed to be the inspiration for James Bond. Primarily a diplomat, he held posts in the Foreign Office serving in Russia during WW1 where he was accused of plotting to assassinate Lenin and imprisoned in the Kremlin until exchanged for Litvinov. He then served in Czechoslovakia and worked in the late 20s for Beaverbrook Newspapers until he took up writing full time. He returned to the FO in WW2 were he was Director-General of Political Warfare. He returned successfully to writing after the war and had a prolific output until he died in 1970.
