You talk with him and get for answers grunts; he does not smile . . ’ Later, less wild-eyed writers, such as George Douglas Brown, John MacDougall Hay and others, also wrote books depicting an ugly underbelly of Scotch whisky consumption – criminality, ruthless violence and personal destruction through alcoholism. These depictions were not merely authorial fictions; wherever one finds low-priced distilled spirits in abundance one will find unsettlingly high levels of alcoholism. Just as England suffered when dirt-cheap gin flooded its urban areas, parts of Scotland similarly succumbed to whisky.
A nip of whisky at dawn, another during a work break and a bit at dusk. Densely settled urban areas were another story. In Glasgow, for example, there was one public house for every people, and this does not count the illegal shebeens where cheap, white-hot whisky often called ‘kill-me-deadly’ was poured. Both the dreadful urban conditions and machismo encouraged binge drinking. The rules amongst tradesmen shops could be outright baroque. Drink funds were established, and workers could be tithed for both bad and good performance.
One of the earliest cinema commercials showed four kilted men dancing in front of a Dewar’s banner. Of course, not all ads were of this type. Some touted Scotch as a health tonic. Cambus Scotch called itself a ‘wholesome stimulant’ that ‘ministers to good health and neither affects the head nor the liver’. Other promotional activities lurched into the outright ludicrous. ’ As the twentieth century progressed, the portrayal of Scotch as Scottishness shifted a bit. There was less earnest pastoralism, and more wit and mirth.
