For more than a century, Scotch whisky has been the premier international spirit of choice. Uisge-beatha, Gaelic for “water of life”, is enjoyed in more than 200 countries, generating over $6 billion in exports each year. While capturing stunning Scottish landscapes, the real heart of this celebratory documentary is the fascinating people who make this amber nectar. This includes the Cinderella tale of legendary master distiller Jim McEwan, an industry veteran who takes on a dilapidated distillery on his home island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides and turns it into an award-winning blend.
