Description:

In the 17th century, illicit distilling was seen as the "right of man" by the Scottish people. Attempts to enfore excise duty on the sales of whisky were met with riots, and people found more and more ingenious ways to avoid paying taxes on their spirits. This book takes a fascinating look at the day-to-day struggles that led to the rise of illicit distilling from the mid 1600s, up until its demise in the 20th century.
