Trip to Scotland

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Speyburn distilleryTomorrow I’m off to Scotland.

I was invited by the nice people of Inver House to visit (most of) the distilleries in their portfolio: Pulteney, Balblair, Speyburn and Knockdhu (home of anCnoc).

I’m sure I’ll be able to try great new whisky at each of the distilleries but tomorrow I’ll get in the mood with a Balblair that’s long gone.

    Enjoy your maiden trip, Ruben. With all the whisky knowledge and expertise you obviously already possess, I wonder what visiting the birthplace of the uisge beatha will do for you… Looking forward to your report.

    Happy trails.

  • sjoerd972: I wish the guys at Bushmills would demand the labels to say "Northern Ireland" so we didn't have to speculate on the booze's origins.
