Say it with Something Sweet on Valentine’s Day

This is a chance to show you care, say “I love you”, or just to share a little something sweet with someone special. What better way to show you care than gifting them some delicious whisky fudge that comes in a lovely box with hearts all over it?

GlenDronach Cask Strength – Batch 5

A Day at Glen Moray Distillery

Well it wasn’t “just” a day at Glen Moray Distillery, it was a day at their first Christmas Fair…in the cooperage and yes I was delighted to have been invited up to it.

I was going up to sell and chat about my whisky fudge, seeing as I make it, and if you didn’t know that already, then where have you been?! I had made the following: Glen Moray Elgin Classic Sherry Cask Finish, Glenfiddich 12 year old, Laphroaig 10 year old #009, Caol Ila 12 year old, Aberlour A’bunadh Batch 57, and GlenDronach Cask Strength Batch 5 or 6.4kg of the above.

So early-ish on Saturday morning (after sleeping in) I boarded the train to Elgin full of eager anticipation for the day ahead. A lovely journey on the train passing a fair amount of distilleries on the way…gotta love living in Scotland 🙂

Upon arriving at the distillery I was dropped off at the cooperage and I went to find my table to set up. I met and chatted with fellow stall holders (a lady who made yummy scented candles and the Rotary Club to my right.) I then popped round to the Spirit of Speyside stand to say hello and introduce myself to John Blyth – the new festival manager. I said hello to Graham and Fay as I went to get a coffee and a rather yummy pigs in blankets and cranberry combo… late brekky / brunch and bloody lovely! Drool!

Then the fair started.. What a setting! All adorned in festive decorations, with blues and golds and twinkling lights setting the scene for the day. The Angel’s Share hanging seductively in the air around the distillery…just wait, there are some delicious drams maturing.

I sold a lot of fudge and chatted and smiled the day away, I met the lady from Cairngorm Leaf and Bean and bought some Mountain Brew coffee. I also bought some of the latest Bottle Your Own from the distillery, this being the 2007 – 10 year old Port Finish (4 year finish) 57.1% abv. I think fate intervened as I realised I had bottle number 11 🙂 with bottle 12 being bought for a friend. Then another bottle to keep, the 1994 Sherry Cask Finish. You can hear a round the table tasting of it here…(click on the link)  Podcast by This is My Dram. I have already had the pleasure of one bottle and this one will stay closed for now… and picked up the Marsala finish and Bordeaux finish paid samples too. I went to say hello to another face I recognised and who recognised me too, James Campbell – Chairman at the Spirit of Speyside Festival and had a lovely chat about..yes you guessed it, whisky! Hee hee. Who else? There was lovely Jeanine and her hubby and also Mr Distillery Bikes and his wife. Nice to see you all.

Then it was time to go and hear the choir sing carols and watch the Christmas lights being switched on. The local brass band and choir in perfect harmony.

I must add, that everyone who works at the distillery that I met were happy, funny and welcoming, so refreshing to see and so nice to be around for the day. A lot of local businesses enjoyed a wonderful day and so did everyone else, from very tiny babies to those of older years. A day for all.

So, I guess that all that’s left to say is this, there is a lovely distillery you MUST visit. It is in Elgin. It is the Glen Moray Distillery. They have some absolutely wonderful whiskies for you to fall in love with…

Fudge Me

Fudge friends…

Please keep an eye out on upcoming posts if you’d like to order some fudge from me.

I’ll be including a Google form which will make things a lot easier for you. All details will be on the form, so all you’ll need to do is choose and pay.

Sweet something’s…

Well things might become a little bit more exciting on the fudge front very soon, and all I can say is “watch this space”.

And you know what? I think it’s brilliant. It’s making me smile, and let’s face it, that’s not a bad thing.
From the humble “could I make that?”, through to my food handling and hygiene certificate, deciding on what packaging to use and all the the fun and interesting work in between. It’s giving me focus. The feedback is phenomenal and yes it really does make me happy!

So anyway. Just an update and I guess a huge and lovely thanks to those who have said they believe in me, because you have been there for the journey too.
