The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom
Usually referred to as "The Barnard" this is a great source of information for those interested in the history of Whisky.
Barnard traveled in 1886 through Great Britain and visited every Distillery in operation. He found 129 in Scotland, 28 in Ireland, and 4 in England, and described them in every detail. His book also contains sketches of most of the distilleries.
This edition is introduced by Richard Joynson, owner of Loch Fyne Whiskies.
