new whisky book

Postby Rob Allanson » Mon Jan 19, 2009 12:43 pm

This looks like it could be well worth a read. Written by a self confessed grumpy old man, will give you a companion with your late night drams.

Be inspired and amused by this alternative account of six ‘grumpy old men’ training to achieve the seemingly impossible.

This book tells the tale of The Gravesend Malt Whisky Club – a group of irreverent whisky-drinking forty-somethings who, following a ‘bright idea’ in the local pub, decide to sign-up to and train for the Caledonian Challenge.

The ‘Cally Challenge’ is a charity event involving a 54-mile trek along the West Highland Way to be completed in 24 hours. This is an hilarious account of the group’s training regime which begins in the depths of winter at ‘pub crawl level’ and progresses with longer forays around the beautiful (and not so) Kent countryside, eventually culminating in Scotland and the event itself.

Be inspired and amused by this true account of the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ of a group or ordinary blokes attempting to achieve something out of the ordinary. If you have never walked to the South Pole or climbed Everest this book may just be the inspiration you need to go for the seemingly unattainable. This book is proof that it is not impossible for people with jobs and families to aspire to achieve something great.

Why should you read this book?

It’s entertaining.
It’s different to the usual extreme challenge tales written by ex-SAS guys, which are impossible to aspire to; this is about real people taking on a challenge and succeeding.
It will encourage you to try malt whisky.
You will finish the book feeling that you can truly take-on anything and succeed.
