SCOTCH - THE STORY OF WHISKEY
2016 BBC Two documentary follows David Hayman (Trial & Retribution) as he surveys the state of the Scotch whisky industry and examines the threats to its world dominance. The story of whiskey embraces craftsmanship, culture, identity, land, science, marketing and ties itself to great historical events. A drink, certainly, but so much more: the story of Scotch is one of a multinational, multi-billion-dollar super-industry.
Here, for the first time, that story is told in detail through a warm, elegant miniseries. Scotch: the Story of Whisky marries the allure of scenic Scotland with engrossing storytelling, rich characters and frequent revelations. The tale of whisky is the tale of Scotland's gift to the world, and so it follows that Scotch embroils itself in U.S history and travels to Sweden, Japan and Australia.
