The Malt Whisky Murders

Polygon, Spring 2025

When a dilapidated whisky distillery comes up for sale in Campbeltown, a place once hailed ‘Whisky Capital of the World’, Eilidh and her wife Morag jump at the chance to run the first women-owned whisky distillery in Scotland. But a grisly, decades-old secret is soon revealed: two dead bodies have been stuffed into whisky barrels, perfectly preserved in single malt. To add to their woes, a TV crew has just arrived, and the locals won’t leave them alone.

There are several close calls for the women as well as whisky tastings, ceilidhs, protests, scandals and everything you’d expect from a wee Scottish town imprisoned by its own geography. No matter how hard you try, the locals will always find out your secrets.
