Kate Hopkins’ new book “99 Drams of Whiskey: The Accidental Hedonist’s Quest for the Perfect Shot and the History of the Drink” is getting a lot of attention from whisky lovers…and with good reason. She’s been blogging as the Accidental Hedonist since 2004, and I think it’s one of the best whisky books of the year. We’ll hear from Kate in this episode…and in the news, the legal fight over Glen Breton Rare Single Malt Canadian Whisky may be over after a Canadian Supreme Court ruling, Isle of Jura shuts down because of ferry problems, and new whiskies from The Glenrothes and Douglas Laing.
