Historic Distillery Tours in “1887”

Join Alfred Barnard as he tours the whisky distilleries in the late 1800’s…

He expected his journey to take around two years and he visited 129 distilleries in Scotland, 28 in Ireland and 4 of the 10 then licensed in England. At each one he recorded detailed descriptions of the whisky production, the equipment used, water sources, the size and volume of buildings, machines and vessels, and the general arrangement of the processes in place in each distillery.

Of the original print, only a small number of copies survive to this day, some in leather presentation binding, but most in a green cloth binding shown in the photo.

I hope you enjoy your historical journey with Alfred as you tour each of the distilleries as if it was still 1887.
