World PREMIERE

BOTF: The Amber Light

Part of the Best of the Fest Strand

Body

A tasty and fascinating road movie, The Amber Light journeys through the lesser-known parts of Scottish whisky culture. Spirits writer Dave Broom seeks a deeper understanding of his national drink and its links to music, literature and history. Speaking to innovators, thinkers and drinkers in the whisky world – from farmers and distillers through to writers (Ian Rankin features prominently) and musicians – The Amber Light unpicks whisky mythology, following the evolution of spirits from medicine to social lubricant. Offbeat and informative, this is an amusing look at the amber nectar. [12A]

The Amber Light is nominated for the 2019 Award for Best Documentary Feature Film.
