Angus Martin; Campbeltown Whisky: An Encyclopeadia
Poet and historian Angus Martin was born in Campbeltown in 1952 and has lived there all his life. In this, his
thirty-seventh book, he has employed his intimate knowledge of the history and families of his native community
to produce the defi nitive account of the distillers, distilleries and related trades and industries which transformed
a small West Highland fi shing town into the whisky-making capital of the world. Exhaustive research in neglected sources has endowed this study with unprecedented detail and insight. Campbeltown Whisky will reward both malt whisky enthusiasts and local historians who seek beyond superfi ciality and myth.
