Happy Retirement Don

20 February 2012

Don Ramsay, our longest serving cooper, began with us exactly one week after his 15th birthday on Christmas Day 1961.  As Don's Manager, we had the pleasure of working and travelling together across the world, where he would showcase his coopering talents at whisky festivals in locations such as Washington, New York, Johannesburg and of course Scotland. I remember having many conversations with Don about wood and its importance in relation to the quality of whisky.

He was a man of standards and understood what good quality oak brought to our whisky. I will miss him around the Distillery and as a companion around the world. Happy Retirement Don.
