David Milsted & Adam Bergius Auction

Books Auction


This lot contains two small books which offer a light-hearted look at the whisky industry:

Bluff Your Way in Whisky by David Milsted, published in 1992. This book explains how to come across as a whisky aficionado. This small excerpt from the introduction sets the tone: 'There are two eternal truths about whisky, (1) No two whiskies are alike, and (2) 99 per cent of whisky drinkers can't tell the difference until it's revealed to them. Keep pointing out number (1) while bearing number (2) in mind, and you can't go wrong.'

Make Your Own Scotch Whisky with original text by Adam Bergius (former Chairman and Export Director of Wm. Teacher & Sons) and illustrations by Rowland Emmett. This offers a humorous step-by-step guide to produce malt whisky. At the end of the instructions, once the whisky is made, the author concludes: 'However, as you have made it outside the law, you will not be allowed to call it anything, and, in fact, you had better keep very quiet about it.'

This Bluff Your Way In Whisky & Make Your Own Scotch Whisky sold at our online auction for £18
