Run Time: 87 minutes
Scotch drinkers unite because a film has finally come along to tell us what all the fuss is about. In SCOTCH we’re transported to the island of Islay where the world’s best scotch is made. And, with guidance from some of the biggest names in the business, we are given a grand tour of how the “Water of Life” comes to your glass. Even if you’re not a scotch drinker, there’s something fascinating and admirable about the way in which these denizens of the scotch distilleries approach their craft as true artists. There’s a science to it all, and the men and women who have made scotch the central focus of their lives are the Einsteins and Hawkings of their particular discipline. Beginning with how barley is chosen, where the water comes from, the differences between the barrels, and how much age really plays into the taste, SCOTCH is a loving portrait of a spirit that has graced our mouths for over 500 years. So sit back and enjoy a dram—uisge beatha! —T.W.
