Book Description

Written and published by George Malcolm Thomson (1899-1996) in an edition of 1600 copies, it is a classic and rare work. Thomson wrote it anonymously, allegedly because he didn't want his mother to know he wasn't teetotal (I expect she did). It is a forthright insight into the declining single malt industry in 1930s Scotland, and contributed to the subsequent revival of interest in 'this liberating and audacious drink' which he was rightly so passionate about.
