For more than a century, Scotch whisky has been the premier international spirit of choice. Shot on location in Scotland, this film tells the story of Uisge beatha, Gaelic for “water of life.” While capturing stunning Scottish landscapes, the real heart of this film is the characters – the fascinating people who make Scotch whisky.
We explore some of the biggest names in the industry, including Richard Paterson, a master blender whose nose was insured for $2.5 million, Glasstorm, a company specializing in hand-made bottles for rare whiskies that sell for over $10,000 each, and the Cinderella tale of Jim McEwan, distiller and master blender, a 52-year industry veteran, guiding us to discover the process and the people, how they came to immerse themselves in the art and science of making whisky, and their drive for perfection.
Yes! Scotland is coming to Victoria (flashbacks? anyone?)!
Savour tasters from the distillery’s Twa Casks series which has whiskies from Highland, Speyside and Islay regions – as well as their own spirit which is made right here in Victoria in the traditional Scottish style by some legends of the scotch industry.
