Celebrate the wonderful world of whisky - the 'water of life' - in all its glory and variety. An invaluable resource for whisky aficionados everywhere, 1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before you Die explores the traditional tipple's incredible diversity, introduces you to a host of often new, and sometimes rare, finds, and is sure to enhance your appreciation and enjoyment of the drink in all its forms. A unique and inspirational guide to the mouth-watering world of whisky.

Time-honoured, luxurious, and naturally made, whisky has a noble heritage unparalleled by any other spirit. Scottish writer David Daiches once said, 'The drinking of whisky is more than indulgence: it is a toast to civilisation, 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 to enjoy to the full the senses with which he has been endowed.' It is not just the Scots who have mastered the art of producing this delectable drink.

1001 Whiskies You Must Try Before You Die takes you on a fascinating global whisky tour - from Scotland and Ireland through North America, Japan, India, and the rest of the world, providing insight into the 1001 best and most exciting whiskies ever made - from the established classics, such as Scotland's Springbank, to emerging greats from Japan.

Author of The World's Best Whiskies - 750 Unmissable Drams from Tain to Tokyo (2010), Need To Know Whiskies (2008) and Collin's Gems: Whisky (2009), Dominic has visited most of the distilleries of Scotland, Ireland, and America, and travels regularly to distilleries around the world in search of new drams.

Jim Murray is one of the United Kingdom's most highly respected whisky journalists, largely due to his annually revised publication, Jim Murray's Whisky Bible, also available as an app, and his website, www.whiskybible.com. The Whisky Bible records the results of more than 4500 of Murray's personal whisky tastings, from which he selects his coveted award of World Whisky of the Year; equally desired is Murray's Liquid Gold Award, earned by every whisky in the book scoring 94 points and upward. Murray is known for raising the profile of once-neglected whiskies - notably Irish pot still, Japanese, and American rye - and is chair judge on the International Wine and Spirit Competition.
