Back Cover Text The truth is of course that whisky was invented for a single, practical reason - to offset Scotland's weather. Raise your glass and toast this collection of delightful tales, all inspired by Scotland's finest achievement: whisky. We see how the amber nectar can help get rid of a pesky giant, why you should never build a house without offering the foundations a dram and how it can bring a man back from the brink of death. Whisky has a long and colourful history in Scotland, causing riots and easing feuds, and McHardy has gathered together stories which have been passed down through many generations, often over a wee nip. Tales of Whisky is a tribute to the Scottish sense of humour and love of fine storytelling.
