Created by an international filmmaking team, Scotch delves deeper into the personalities behind the revered drink that stands at the heart of Scottish culture and life. Filmed throughout the Scottish countryside, it examines the history and making of Uisge Beatha - the water of life. At the heart of the documentary are the characters who inhabit it, including Richard Paterson, a master blender whose nose was insured for $2.5 million, and Jim McEwan, the legendary distiller and industry veteran.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and a special reception hosted by Blackwater Distillery in the VIP Lounge Omniplex.

A primer on the subject of whiskey but also an affectionate portrait of a master blender.
