Bad Whisky by Edward Burns
Bad Whisky: The Scandal That Created the World's Most Successful Spirit By Edward Burns
This is a unique insight into the Victorian scandal which raged at the end of the 19th century surrounding the adulteration of whisky in public houses throughout the UK. Returning to contemporary press reports and Hansard, Edward Burns masterfully unravels the scandal which eventually resulted in laws being passed which created safeguards for what is now known the world over as Scotch.
