About this item

"Does being a philosopher require an appreciation of good whiskey or does having an appreciation of good whiskey make one philosophical? Whichever is the case, "Whiskey & Philosophy" makes for a thought-provoking and thirst-inducing read. Cheers!"
--Chris Morris, Master Distiller, Woodford Reserve Distillery
""Whiskey & Philosophy" contains a panacea of spiritual pleasure waiting to be enjoyed and shared. Many books have been written about whiskey, but few take you as deep into its inner world. It is an enlightening journey, and one that crosses boundaries and opens new doors. This is indeed a book that unlocks a treasure chest of pure liquid gold to the whiskey enthusiast."
--Richard Paterson, Master Blender, Whyte and Mackay Ltd.
"Whiskey & Philosophy" explores the heart and soul of this heady potation in a lively collection of essays from philosophers, other academics, and whiskey writers. From the first reference to Scotch in 1494 in the records of King James IV of Scotland to Hillary Clinton tossing back that famous shot of Crown Royal during the 2008 campaign, this spirited book captures the history of whiskey, its various forms, and associated philosophical issues.
The talk is lively, the opinions run high, and "Whiskey & Philosophy" is a satisfying blend. Open and enjoy.
