Episode 2: This episode visits Scotland's beautiful whisky centers, which have been cleverly utilized in marketing campaigns for Scotch since 1898. The isle of Islay, in the Hebrides, hosts ancient Celtic sites where distilling was first developed. The "amber republic" of Speyside, home to almost half of Scotland's distilleries, was once a smuggling hub and is now a key cog in the modern industry.

Starring: David Hayman.
