Does anyone know this book on Port Ellen distillery??
I read a review on Whisky-News the site from Patrick Brossard.
It is also available on Amazon.uk.

I had noticed it, all I know is it gives the complete history of the Port Ellen distillery and explains why it was closed and dismantled.

Thank you.
This is what I found under the whisky-news hoempage:

The Legend of Port Ellen Distillery by Holger Dreyer, Unibuch Verlag bei zu Klampen, 2015

Port Ellen is one of the most iconic lost Scottish malt whisky distilleries and is triggering a lot of interest amongst whisky collectors. In this book, the history of Port Ellen is well described and contains a fair amount of black & white photographs of high quality that should please anyone interested in the distillery. It contains as well numerous colour photographs taken after the closure, but before and during its final destruction. Although it does not contain a list of bottling from the distillery owner, numerous photographs of Port Ellen bottles illustrate this book. I wished production details were provided instead of a "cask analysis"?, which would be most relevant for some whisky enthusiasts such as myself. The layout is pleasant and the book reads well and would make a very good addition to the bookshelf for anyone interested about this legendary distillery. Of note, no tasting notes on the whisky are provided.

Rating: 4.5/5
