The GreatDrams of Scotland Book

Always keen to support a fellow writer; I introduce you to Mr. Greg Dillon- an award-winning writer and blogger, whose whisky and spirits focused website was awarded Best Food & Drink Blog of the Year at the UK Blog Awards 2017, and named in the Top Five Whisky Blogs in the World by the International Whisky Competition in 2015. Mr. Dillon has also lent his knowledge to his new book named, ‘The GreatDrams of Scotland’ – a hardback book released on 12th October, 2017 and priced £19.99. In The GreatDrams of Scotland, Mr. Dillon, takes readers on an journey of discovery through the world of Scottish whisky, exploring the brands that have brought Scotch to life throughout history since the 15th century.

“Greg’s love of whisky drips through every chapter, and his writing is authentic, incisive and entertaining. Serve this book up with a generous measure of Scotch by your side” -Colin Dunn, Diageo Reserve Whisky Ambassador.

Taking in 28 distilleries and 23 iconic brands, The GreatDrams of Scotland reveals the legend and the history, the fact and the fiction, through personal accounts of the Dillon’s many journeys across the country. More than just a whisky guide; the book decodes labels and demystifies malts and blends.


Perfect for whisky enthusiasts or newbies, the book is full of tasting notes, inspirational interviews, fun facts, amusing anecdotes, insider secrets, and a whisky pairing in each chapter so you can drink along as you read.
