The Isle of Barra in the Scottish Hebrides consists of a wild, wonderful, rugged landscape and is home to one of the iconic malt whisky distilleries for which Scotland is so famous. Whisky is traditionally made from malted barley, which is milled to open the husk, and then mashed with hot water. The mixture is fermented in vats and then distilled. The master distiller transfers the liquid to oak barrels, then they wait sometimes years, and often decades. True quality can’t be rushed. It is generally agreed that the addition of Scottish spring or mountain water, filtered through the peat bogs, contributes to the distinctive flavour and purity of Scottish malt.
In need of more than a hot toddy
A traditional remedy for a bad head cold is hot lemon juice and honey with a good dash of whisky in it. Actually, it would be a crime to use a fragrant single or double malt in such a way, and in any case it does not strictly have any medicinal purposes apart from being mildly antiseptic but it might numb the patient’s suffering a little.
However, if your poor state of being is due to more than a bad cold, maybe down to injuries you have suffered at the hands of someone else or as a result of third party negligence, you may find you are in need of injury lawyers on the Isle of Barra.
