An entertaining documentary about the men and women who bring Scotch whisky to life.
The distillation of Scotch whisky, whose Gaelic name means ‘water of life’, is a centuries-old practice. The film journeys to the Scottish countryside to uncover the history of the craft and meet some of the biggest names in the industry, in a revealing look at how Scotch became the premiere spirit of choice around the globe.
Alongside the history the film charts the story of Jim McEwan involved in the whisky business as a small boy who takes on a dilapidated distillery on his home island of Islay and turns it into an award-winning blend.
