Clare Mulley presents InGoodTaste- cooking up a storm every week on ZoneOneRadio,

This week we’re taking a look at whisky.

Like many other types of alcohol, Whisky began life as a medicine distilled by monks using fermented Grain. Aqua vitae or ‘water of life’ as it was originally known, has now become one of the most popular drinks in the world - surviving the dissolution of the monasteries, civil war and prohibition along the way. And now thanks to a rise in the popularity of cocktails and Mad Men, whisky drinking is attracting a new crowd of younger drinkers.

We visited a whisky festival in Shoreditch, hosted by The Whisky Lounge, spoke to Diageo whiskey ambassador Collin Dunn and Pritesh Mody from Indian brand, Paul John whiskey.

Lucy Boler is also in the InGoodTaste kitchen with her take on the classic Scotish dessert, Cranachan
