Burns' Night in Israel

29 2월 2012

A busy period of travel continued as I headed to the beautiful quarter of Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv, Israel towards the end of last month to promote the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish and also host a Burns' Night dinner for selected guests later on in the week.



Happy Retirement Don

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.
