During Prohibition (1920- 1933) it was illegal in the United States to sell, manufacture, or transport liquor. It was not illegal to buy or drink it-and America was thirsty! In September 1923 Scotsman Alastair Moray set out from Glasgow to the United States on board the 187-foot, four-masted schooner Cask loaded with thousands of cases of fine Scotch whiskey. The trip that was supposed to take three-months lasted eleven, and Moray detailed each day’s activity in brilliant fashion. First published in 1929, The Diary of a Rum-Runner has been fully researched and updated with new information which confirms, and expands upon, Alastair Moray’s incredible, yet true, account of his time as a rum-runner.
