July 24th starts off National Scotch Week
“The proper drinking of Scotch whisky is more than indulgence: it is a toast to civilization, a tribute to the continuity of culture, a manifesto of man’s determination to use the resources of nature to refresh mind and body and enjoy to the full the senses with
which he has been endowed.”
– David Daiches, Scotch Whisky 1969
