  • "Literature discussing whisky processing with respect to the ‘art of beverage’ production is numerous, however few reference textbooks consider the science and technology behind whisky manufacturing. Whisky: Technology, Production and Marketing therefore presents detailed information on both the ‘art of beverage’ and the scientific aspects behind Scottish whisky production…an excellent source of detailed information on the scientific aspects of whisky production...It should appeal to all researchers with interests in distilled spirits, and the casual reader with interest in drinking such high quality products." (John F. Kennedy & Francois Meullenet, University of Birmingham Research, U.K., November 2004) "There is no doubt that it is an important contribution to the literature available on whisky and will be welcomed by all with an interest in this subject...This is an excellent book, which was badly needed. It has a consistent style, reads well and will I am sure become standard reference and learning text. Effort has been made to minimize the cost of this hardback edition for which we can be thankful. Students of distilling can rejoice!" -JOURNAL OF INSTITUTE OF BREWING (2003) "This well-written book provides a wealth of useful information on all aspects relating to whisky production...Overall, this is a well-conceived, well-written, and well-organized book. This will prove to be an excellent addition to the bookshelf of any undergraduate or Masters level student who wishes to understand the field of whisky production and marketing." -ALLTECH (OCTOBER 2003) "5/5 stars This book is worth owning!!This book is a real gem, it is well written by writers very knowledgeable in their field...I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next volume in the series." -Robert Piggot (SEPTEMBER 2003)
