Whisky by Aeneas MacDonald
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An authentic facsimile edition of Aeneas Macdonald's 1930 classic with a new introduction by Ian Buxton and foreword by Charles Maclean. First published in 1930, Aeneas Macdonald's Whisky is considered a classic of whisky writing. The earliest book on the subject written from the drinker's point of view, it remains a passionate and unerringly contemporary plea for the world's most exclusive spirit. Yet he published under a pseudonym. In this commemorative edition, Ian Buxton has added a new introduction which solves the mystery of the book's authorship, and also reminds us why, even seventy years on, this little book remains the liveliest and best guide on how, when and why to drink whisky.

Author Biography

Aeneas Macdonald was the pseudonym of George Malcolm Thomson. He was author of some twenty well-regarded books and died in 1996. Whiskey was published in 1930, under the pseudonym Aeneas MacDonald, which he never used again, in deference to his mother. His family were strict teetotalers and he did not wish to offend her sensibility on the subject.
