On the road in the Mercedes-Benz Vito on the Scottish island of Islay: The whisky legend Jim McEwan distills the "water of life" in Bruichladdich.

The lifeblood of Scotland.

Scotland would not be the Scotland we know without whisky. When you ask about the origin of the word then it becomes clear just how important this spirit is for the country of Braveheart and Loch Ness: the Scots Gaelic word whisky means nothing less than “water of life”. Whisky is far more than just a drink, especially for the inhabitants of the island of Islay on the west coast of Scotland. It is the region’s lifeblood. This “water of life” is manufactured in accordance with a centuries-old tradition and is an art in itself. One which only a few people have mastered to the same degree as Jim McEwan, Bruichladdich’s master distiller. Jim has dedicated his entire life to making whisky. The gruff Scotsman is regarded as a single malt magician. In 2001 he saved the Bruichladdich distillery on the island of Islay; today its whiskey is regarded as one of the best in the world.
