Whisky Dream - Waking a Giant

Author:  Stuart Rivans



Author Rivans spins a fascinating tale of travails and triumphs in the revival of not only one but two mothballed Islay distilleries.  Bruichladdich & Port Charlotte rebirths in this decade give testimony to the energy, dedication and stubborness of founders Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin and Jim McEwan.  Through their resourcefulness and persistence these distilleries have literally returned from their graves to put the industry on notice.  Their journey makes for a compelling and highly entertaining saga that reveals as much about the character of Islay natives, as it does about the "dreamers" themselves.
