Scotland's secret history: the illicit distilling and smuggling of whisky

MacLean, Charles; MacCannell, Daniel, author; Ellington, Marc, editor

Bloody street battles, shocking levels of public corruption and cat-and-mouse chases across Highland hills: the story of illicit distilling and smuggling whisky in Scotland is as full of excitement and intrigue as the most outlandish work of fiction. The result of the most extensive research ever carried out into illicit distilling, this book dispels a number of firmly established assumptions about this highly significant yet widely misunderstood aspect of Scottish history, establishing illicit distilling in its rightful place as the historic predecessor to and a cornerstone of Scotland's present multi-million-pound whisky industry
