Warehouse tastings and limited tours of the distillery are continuing despite the renovation work taking place in the still house and the mash house. We cannot pretend that the tours are quite as exciting as when production is in full swing with all the sights, sounds and smells that involves, but a visit can still be very interesting. Please call 01496 850190 to book, or just swing by the Laddieshop to say hello.
February is a quiet month for visitors of course, but we have still been able to welcome quite a few. You can read about the experiences of Rocky and his friends from The Whisky Exchange a blog about “The World of Fine Spirits”. Rocky offers some comprehensive tasting notes from the Laddie Classic and The Botanist as well as a vivid description of his visit.
It was also good to welcome Alwynne Gwilt “Miss Whisky” last week, who describes her mission as “Correcting the ‘Miss’ belief that women don’t like whisky”. Happily Alwynne is pushing against an increasingly open door. She was accompanied on a tour of warehouse six by Duncan McGillivray and was introduced to a couple of drams which have never been made available for sale. These included a 1989 Laddie and an Octomore from 2002, the first ever distillation of the world’s most heavily peated whisky.
