But in the first novel of an engaging new series blending fine spirits with chilling mystery, Abi finds that there are secrets lurking in the misty glens that some will go to any lengths to protect . . . even murder. When Abi inherits her uncle’s quaint and storied single malt distillery, she finds herself immersed in a competitive high-stakes business that elicits deep passions and prejudices. An award-winning photojournalist, Abi has no trouble capturing the perfect shot—but making the perfect shot is another matter. When she starts to receive disturbing, anonymous threats, it’s clear that someone wants her out of the picture. But Abi’s never been one to back down from a fight. Arriving on the scene with her whisky-loving best friend, Patrick, and an oversized wheaten terrier named Liam, Abi seems to put everyone in the bucolic village on edge—especially her dour but disturbingly attractive head distiller. Acts of sabotage and increasingly personal threats against Abi make it clear that she is not welcome. When one of Abi’s new employees is found floating facedown in a vat of whisky, Abi is determined to use her skills as an investigative journalist to identify the cold-blooded killer and dispense a dram of justice before he strikes again. But distilling truth from lies is tricky, especially when everyone seems to have something to hide. Melinda Mullet’s delightful Whisky Business mysteries can be read together or separately.

Scotch whisky is unquestionably among the most beloved distilled spirits in the world. Its colorful history, the complex process of its distillation, the variety of forms it takes, and its inextricable involvement with the culture, history, and character of its native country have all contributed to a recent worldwide explosion of interest in this unique liquor, comparable only to the sudden growth of interest in French wines that took place in the 1950s and 1960s. In Single Malt Scotch, author Roddy Martine and photographer Bill Milne have combined their talents to produce a rich and sumptuous volume in which the romance, mystery, warmth, and tradition surrounding Scotch whisky are brought gorgeously to life.

You've explored the idea of making your own beer and shot down the notion of wine just as soon as it cropped up. Your tastes demand something bolder, richer and stronger. You're a scotch lover and nothing is going to change that. After all, there is nothing quite like drinking a smooth shot of scotch after a long day to warm the body from toes to soul. Perhaps the only thing that might compare is actually being able to boast that the shot in question came from your own private reserve; one you created with your own hands. Just imagine kicking back after a long day and savoring the flavors of your own private stock. Picture your friends' delight when you are able to share a bottle of one of the rarest stocks in the world - a stock of your own creation! It is possible to make your own scotch whisky, crafted specifically to meet your discriminating tast. The spirit of kings and the pride of Scotland, scotch is not technically difficult to create, but it does demand a careful hand and the patience of a saint. Instant gratification, however, is not something that comes with creating a full bodied, rich flavored scotch. It can take weeks to prepare the ingredients and fully bring a scotch whisky through the distillation process. Once that's done, there is still much waiting involved with maturation. In fact, the longer you wait before you break open a cask, the better the scotch is likely to be! If you are looking for a do-it-yourself project that offers fast rewards, making scotch might not be for you. But, since you're a scotch lover, you know that good things come to those who wait. Take your time, study up on scotch, identify the traits you like in your own favorite brand and try to replicate them and you might discover the rewards of making your own scotch far outweigh the time involved in doing so.
