The Story of Scotch Whisky

Posted on April 20th, 2018

Talk given by Sir Geoffrey Palmer, Professor Emeritus for Life Sciences

The story of Scotch Whisky officially started about the time Columbus stumbled on the New World.

Barley Malt was, and still is, an important ingredient of Scotch Whisky.

This importance is reflected in the politics of the Union of 1707 and in the poetic work of Robert Burns.

Geoff specialises in grain science and has extensive expertise with barley, sorghum, other cereals and malt. He attracted and received funding to set up the International Centre for Brewing and Distilling at Heriot-Watt University.
