At around 1AM last night I stumbled upon the whisky episode of a four part documentary series produced by the BBC called Addicted to Pleasure which was hosted by the Professor of Scotch Pronunciation, Brian F#$@ing Cox! Here is what the BBC has to say about this series:
Actor Brian Cox reveals the rich and controversial past of sugar, alcohol, tobacco and opium to uncover how the commercial exploitation of these products hooked the world.
Unfortunately, I fell asleep before I could watch the entire episode, but I hope to pick up where I left off later today. I mean seriously, Brian Cox talking about the Water of Life? Sign me up!
Since the only thing better than stumbling upon something really interesting is sharing it with some friends, I thought I would post the video so that we can all share in the experience. Hope you enjoy it. As Mr. Cox would say, “Slainte mhath!”.
