The Scots actor Sam Heughan has been in the news recently, with a range of projects spanning from acting, to launching a new whisky brand, to writing a memoir. He was born in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and is best known for his role as Jamie Fraser on the Starz TV series Outlander.

He has also released his own whisky, titled The Sassenach, which is available in the UK.
The Sassenach is based on a historic Scottish term that means Lowland Scot or English person. It is a blend of four malts and matured in Madeira wine casks. It has a smooth palate with rich aromas. The bottle design is inspired by the Great Glen Company founder, Sam Heughan. It is available in the United Kingdom through Master of Malt.
Heughan has also released a book entitled My Scottish Journey, which is based on his own experiences on a ninety-six-mile walk through the West Highland Way, a rugged, scenic path in Scotland. Heughan says his journey gave him a chance to reflect on his life and his heritage. He wrote the book with Outlander co-star Graham McTavish.
The book was a hit, reaching number one on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction list. Heughan and McTavish will be releasing the English language version, titled It’s All Coming Back to Me, in February of 2023. The release date was confirmed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
