Originally published in Ireland in 1993, this beautifully written book is a true story of how a dodgy crew of misfits drank their way through a cargo of whisky as they crossed the Atlantic in their tramp steamer, only to face arrest when they reached America. The story is told through a lively narrative, as described through the eyes of a young Irish Radio Officer who signs up for a tour of duty on a ship commanded and crewed by a collection of wild and wacky characters. Through the long voyage from Liverpool to New Orleans and further on to Houston, the group discover a large cargo of Scotch whisky bottles, resulting in an experience that proved to be the both best and worst of the author's life. 'Seaspray and Whisky' is a genuinely entertaining and funny story. Certain to appeal to a very wider readership, this is a must-have read for anyone who has unexpectedly fallen into an extraordinary adventure and which left them with memories of a lifetime.

The New Single Malt Whiskey

Some of these expressions are also coastal or maritime in flavor, with sea spray
and salt. More lightly peated whiskies tend to have a mossy character. The level
of peat in a whisky depends on the whisky's “Phenol Parts Per Million” (PPM).

A collection of essays and aphorisms about Scottish Calvinism. This is Scottish literary humour at its finest. 'A work of contemporary shamanism, with all the bluff, poetry, deranged humour, sleight-of-hand and real magic that implies.' Don Paterson. This is the first (and maybe the last) self-help guide that promises to make you feel a lot worse after you read it. A hilarious satire on freeze-dried mysticism and off-the-shelf enlightenment, it is also a haunting and lyrical reflection on places, voices and memories -- a literary journey into the heart of North-East darkness. 'A perfect evocation of Scotland's mysterious love affair with loss and sorrow. A powerful dram of Zen Calvinism.' Richard Holloway
