The Ultimate Dramboree

The Ultimate Dramboree happened on the long weekend of July 6th – 8th 2018, this was at the Rowardennan Lodge Youth Hostel (also known as Midge Hell) at Loch Lomond. I guess I can be described as a Dramboree newbie as this was definitely going to be my last one, the first being last year…which was fun!! Soooo… yes, what…

A Trip to Speyside

Sunday saw me taking a trip to Speyside…well it’s the right thing to do when it’s on your doorstep surely? It really was a gorgeous sunny day and I doubt I’ll ever tire of the stunning views that greet you, as well as on the drive there. It was supposed to be a quick bite of lunch, however if you…

The Last Day of the Year

Well here it is, the last day of the year. What a year… And I’ve got to say, it’s been a good ‘un. It’s been a whisky fuelled one, and I’m not talking consumption… though a few drops might have passed my lips… From my first trip away in January (to York), right through to a busy December, it’s been…

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…

The Whisky Exchange Show (TWE) 

Or of course I could go all youthful and say “Totally Wicked Event!” My little fudge business gained me a ticket to the trade show on the Monday and I was really looking forward to it. Having a day free on the Sunday made one decision easy, buy a ticket for that. So I did. And this is how it…

Gin. To love or not to love?

Well that’s certainly a question that I’ve been considering of late. Do I like gin? Or possibly it should be, do I like the new breed of gin? Maybe? I imagine if someone had asked you a few years back if you fancied one, then it probably would have been Gordon’s Gin. However, these days I’ve seen my local shop…
