THE SPIRIT OF SPEYSIDE
It was our second year of welcoming whisky to the Spirit of Speyside Festival. Last year, as well as tastings and blending workshops, our headline event was Saturday night’s Ceilidh on the grounds of Parkmore Distillery. Around 100 guests joined us for an evening of lively entertainment, a belly full of food and drams.
Tickets to this years Ceilidh at Parkmore, Sat 5 May, are currently on sale www.spiritofspeyside.com
SCOTTISH OPERA TOUR
In June, our newly-established partnership with Scottish Opera set sail aboard the Murray McDavid, touring marinas along the Clyde. The incredibly talented Scottish Opera team performed songs from the much-loved Pirates of Penzance and Bubble McBea to hundreds of guests both young and old.
We look forward to announcing the next Pop-Up Tour and many other events aboard the Murray McDavid later this year.
MALT ON THE MOUNTAIN
In September, we celebrated ‘Malt on the Mountain’. We opened a cask of Benrinnes single malt overlooking the Ben Rinnes mountain, where we shared drams with guests. Throughout the day, we enjoyed traditional Scottish dance and whisky tastings, a tour of Benrinnes Distillery followed by a demonstration from our Cooper. Celebrations carried on into the evening, with live music from the Whisky Bard, Robin Laing followed by a competitive whisky-themed quiz.
