Whisky Island

By (author) Fiona Rintoul; Photographs by Konrad Borkowski

Islay and Jura are the mystical, magical islands in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides that boast nine active distilleries, countless world renowned blends and malts and their own whisky classification, protected by Scots law. This book is a celebration of the whiskies of Islay and Jura, and of the islands that shaped them. With a population of just over 3,000 between them, Islay and Jura produce some of the finest whiskies in the world. Islay is perhaps best known for smoky, phenolic spirits, such as Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg. These have been distilled in its rocky coves of the sheltered east coast for more than 200 years. But in truth Islay and Jura produce a dram for every palette, and their vibrant and expanding whisky industry is a constant source of renewed excellence and taste innovation.
