Product Description

Author: Gavin D. Smith

Publisher: Birlinn

The Secret Still is the most comprehensive book ever devoted to Scottish illicit distilling. It examines the historical events and legislation that gave rise to and sustained its boom years, during which the Scottish countryside, and even city centres, teemed with 'sma' stills' and were awash with whisky which had been distilled without payment of excise duty.
