This is the story of a mission to make the perfect blended whisky. And to make it from single malts produced in Scotland's most geographically scattered distilleries.
In one hectic motorcycle dash, broadcaster and author Tom Morton, editor of Whisky Magazine Rob Allanson and archaelogist Ken Hamilton rode to the most northerly, southerly, easterly and westerly distilleries in Scotland, collected samples of their whisky, and then, with master blender John Ramsay, had them put together with Scotland's most central malt to produce...Journey's Blend.
Wonderful photographs, some hilarious and atmospheric writing...and the chance to make the trip yourself. That's Journey's Blend. And you can buy the whisky too...
