1 - Water of Life - Delectatio

Whisky distillers on the Inner Hebrides island of Islay are always searching for the subtle balance of flavours that makes their whiskies unique. The special peaty water and the salty sea breeze have made their whisky famous throughout the world. The isolated island on the fringe of Europe could be taken to be the symbol of forlornness - an idyllic spot without contact to the present times - but in fact Islay has become a globally coveted brand name. Unique local knowledge and ancient production methods do not contradict the global demand. A rare felicitous harmony of traditional manufacturing and modern methods anchored in the tradition of the ritual Scottish drink, without which either baptisms or funerals would be conceivable on Islay. The first story of the Water of life is subtitled "Delectatio".
