Congratulations Mary!

Mary McGregor, the manager of The Laddieshop here on Islay, has been "Highly Commended" in the Whisky Magazine 'Icons of Whisky Scotland 2014' award. As the magazine says: "The Icons celebrate the people and places behind the greatest whiskies."

Bruichladdich CEO Simon Coughlin says: "We are delighted that Mary has gained this recognition for all the hard work that she has put in. It is through Mary and her staff that the Laddieshop has become such a great place to visit - relaxed, friendly and informal."

Famously described by one of our guests as 'part whisky shop and part surf bar', the Laddieshop has developed a unique atmosphere, and Mary has been instrumental in developing this. It has become the perfect place to enjoy a dram either before or after a tour of this wonderful old Victorian distillery - as well as being a great place to meet like-minded people. So - let us raise a glass to Mary! Slainte!
