This evening the impressive and charismatic Dave Broom leads us through a very special tasting of Scotland’s whiskies to celebrate his new book, A Sense of Place: A journey around Scotland’s whisky.
In this beautifully crafted narrative, Broom examines Scotch whisky from the point of view of its terroir – the land, weather, history, craft and culture that feed and enhance the whisky itself. Travelling around his native Scotland and visiting distilleries from Islay and Harris to Orkney and Speyside, Dave explores the whiskies made there and the elements in their distilling, and locality, which make them what they are. Along the way he tells the story of whisky’s history and considers what whisky is now, and where it is going.
Dave is a complete aficionado on the world of whisky and his previous award winning books also include Whisky: The Manual, Gin: The Manual, Rum: The Manual and The Way of Whisky.
‘Knowledge, integrity, and passion: these are the three words that best describe Dave Broom. It shows in every word he writes’ Whisky Advocate Magazine
