Every time I run whisky tastings I am being asked about the locations of the distilleries that we are sampling.
I have an old whisky map which I bought on a trip to Scotland at least 15 years ago, probably more, which I now use at the tastings. But people are asking if they can get hold of one for themselves.
Basically, I am looking for a supply of maps which I can offer to the participants at my tastings.
I have tried various Scottish sites and Google, but not yet found what I'm looking for.
Does anyone know a bookshop / map shop / whisky shop where I could get a supply sent over to me?
Thanks in advance for your help,
I also saw that 2 sellers on Amazon are offering the same Bartholomew map that I already have as a personal copy.
For €154 and €235 respecitively!
What's all that about then?
Should I be offering mine for sale as a special collector's item?
Collins Whisky map of scotlland, it features notes on over 30 ditilleries as well as showing where they all are. Its conpiled by Andrew Elder, the webiste on the mpa is http://www.fireandwater.com, but cost was £3.25. It folds away into the size of an Ordance suvey map, or 3 inches by 10 estimate!
Found is very useful and highly recommend it.

Sounds like the perfect activity to enjoy with a rare old Glen Googly.

At Neil Wilson Publishing you'll find this one:
The Angels' Share Malt Whisky Map Of Scotland
Author: Neil Wilson
Price: £ 7.99
There have been whisky maps before, but this new map is the best to date. In full colour (with a wealth of distillery information on the reverse) the map gives a full view of the whisky producing regions of Scotland. James MacEwan has redrawn the regional boundaries of these in an attempt to simplify this aspect of the industry.
Jim's unique notes are incorporated on the reverse along with a distillery directory, website addresses, cooperage notes, cask information, Landranger OS map refs and some interesting distillery terms and a Highland distilling licence from 1793.
So if your interest is purely academic, or that of an enthusiast and whisky lover, this new map will be essential for your bookshelf or library wall.
For the first time the Speyside distilleries are incorporated into the body of the map and not as an inset. The new Campbeltown, Shetland, Islay and Fife distilleries are featured for the first time.
The map will also be available in flat format for wall hanging.
I have a copy myself and do find it useful sometimes.
Here's a link to the site:

It has an ISBN 1-903238-42-0
Its excellent its like a michelin or Ordanance survey map and has all the current distilleries and those closed since 1960 on it. On the pack are the addresses and phone numbers of the distilleries.
It might be the sort of thing you are looking for.
Strange, but I never had any problems with Amazon itself as a supplier, but I have only had problems or no responses from individual sellers using Amazon as a platform.
So, although this "Angels Share" seems quite expensive, I shall follow-up and report back.
I am a new member here. I have been wondering about participating this forum for quite a long time. Even if the thread was started by a name MT I am a totally different person
As I was looking at my storage a while back I found a good reason to sign in and participate the discussions.
I found a Malt Whisky Map from my closet and remembered I bought it around 10 years ago or so (give or take few years). It is unfolded map of “Malt Whisky Map of Scotland and Northern Ireland”. There is a Angels Share logo on the top. I noted this old thread and assume the mentions for this map here refers to a folded on, yes ?
I was looking into net also otherwise and found some more mentions about the folded version. Seems however that there is a very little information about the unfolded poster size one, its size is around 67,5 x 97,5 cm. Was it normally sold in stores or just from certain places? Or was it an exclusive for some? Anyway I was thinking is there any more infromation about the map itself and is it rare?
Sorry if this is something basic that I just “should know” but don’t.
