I have been compiling the whisky geek's gift guide for several years. Usually, it goes live when the first empty doors of the boozy advent calendars are popping up on social media and people are inundating their followers with #whiskysanta wishes.

Aaah, books! One can never have enough books. Whether you are forced into lockdown or simply want to snuggle up next to the fireplace, there are plenty of whisky books to enjoy.
