Whisky takes us to the sanctuary of Scottish whisky. It evokes the refinement of the liquor, the knowledge of tasting, the craft of distillation, the tradition of the distilleries and the wonder of the isle itself. This amazing documentary shows us the whisky factories, with their particularities and their masterful approach, all in the singular context of Islay. After all, whisky is intertwined with the land where it is distilled. The distillers love for their whisky is clear when it comes to the distillation process itself. There are no high-tech installations and computer controlled plants. In these distilleries, where gold is produced, gold is ever present. This documentary's attention to detail is as rich as what you would find in a glass of fine malt whisky, even when it explains the malting, fermentation, distillation and bottling. The distillers explain the whole journey of making their product with beautiful meticulousness. But how does one truly appreciate whisky? This rich documentary has the answer: you don’t just drink it, you taste it, with care, openness and attention.
