    Full Description

    Whisky is a story. Whisky is many stories. This book brings together the most surprising anecdotes from the world of whisky and is therefore the perfect addition to other books on distilling, tasting and travelling. Enjoy heart-warming tales about secret recipes, haunted castles, hidden distilleries, generous drunks and the first whisky tourist, and discover aspects about whisky that you’ll never find in any other book. For almost 40 years, whisky enthusiast Fernand Dacquin has been travelling through this wonderful world of whisky, in search of the most striking stories and images. Now he turns those experiences into 111 stories, in his own tongue-in-cheek style. The result is a wonderfully unusual book, published in a practical format that leaves one hand free for a good glass of whisky.

    About the Author

    Fernand Dacquin has travelled the world as a journalist, specialising in tourism and distillates. He’s visited Scotland, the birthplace of whisky, hundreds of times and drew inspiration from all these trips for articles on whisky in newspapers and magazines in Flanders and the Netherlands. In 2011, he became Keeper of the Quaich, which is usually reserved for people from the whisky industry itself. He is co-organiser of the International Malt Whisky Festival in Ghent and also took part in the festival in The Hague. In 2017, he was inducted into the Royal Celtic Society, founded by Sir Walter Scott in 1820, for his contribution to publicising and spreading Scottish culture.
