Raw Spirit — In Search of the Perfect Dram - Iain Banks

Century, 2003, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped.

From the cover: “Iain Banks is widely acknowledged as one of Britain’s greatest living writers, and as a Scotsman he knows something about whisky too. In Raw Spirit, lain combines these two passions with a third, travel. Result — a unique journey around his native land. His goal — to find the perfect dram. And the perfect dram, surely, must be a single malt. Along with a curious bunch of fellow travellers in a selection of cars, planes, ferries, trains, bikes and shoes, he journeys to remote shores and hidden glens, discovering the breathtaking and often inaccessible distilleries where tiny quantities of malt whisky are produced. He finds people engaged in a centuries old tradition where eccentricity is the norm: it’s a journey of a thousand ‘cheers’ and subsequent wobbly walks, of unpronounceable place names and daft customs and superstitions. Will Banks prevail? It’s a tough job but as he puts it — ‘someone’s got to do it, and I’m damn sure it’s going to be me’.”
