Interview with 99 Drams of Whiskey Author Kate Hopkins

People will do crazy things for the devil’s brew. Take the guy who, in 2005, spent more than $70,000 on a single bottle of Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky — one of 12 bottles in the world — and then proceeded to consume it, in one sitting, with a few friends and an English bartender. It was this very story that inspired food blogger Kate Hopkins to trek across the globe, from a 200-year-old distillery in Scotland to Maker’s Mark House and Lounge in Kentucky, for her first book, 99 Drams of Whiskey.
