Ideas

To Highlanders, it was "uisage beatha," the water of life. Scottish poet Robert Burns proclaimed: "Freedom and whisky gang thegither!" Single malt whisky has captured the imagination, as well as thirst: it remains one of Scotland's most popular and poetic exports, appreciated by successive generations in turn. In this encore presentation of a 1996 documentary, Paul Kennedy celebrates single malt Scotch Whisky, as conveyed in the loving words of the men and women who make it.
