24th October: Whisky tasting – recently revived distilleries

It’s that wonderful time of the month again, Whisky Tasting Night! Next Friday , 24th October at 7:45, we shall be hosting another fun evening, focusing on two recently revived distilleries:
 
Glenglassaugh & Benriach
 
By no means household names, these two old distilleries have faced long periods of closure over their long history but now they are now independently owned and are once again producing a range of fantastic single malt whisky!

Glenglassaugh:
Following a complete refurbishment by the new owners the distillery was re-opened on 24 November 2008 by the First Minister for Scotland Alex Salmond MSP who praised the company for their commitment to using the traditional equipment and methods to once again make the unique whisky which is produced at Glenglassaugh.
 
BenRiach-Distillery
Benriach:
“It was with delight, while sworn to secrecy, that I witnessed Benriach gaining its independence, when a team led by the experienced and infectiously enthusiastic Billy Walker acquired the Distillery. This independence will allow BenRiach to unlock its secrets and bring its fine and surprising malts, officially to the market in their natural state for the first time. There cannot be a single true lover of whisky who will not rejoice because of it.” – Jim Murray
