Many Thanks to Mehmet and friends for choosing us for a whisky day trip in the Scottish Highlands. The guys were up here as one of them was getting married and they made a getaway to beautiful Dornoch and Embo. Always one of my favourite areas to visit. We had a great day and even latecomer Steffen managed to catch up on the whisky tour frivolities. Hopefully, you guys will come back and join us again.
Big thanks to the folks at Dalmore, Glenmorangie and Clynelish for making the day’s tours and tastings so special.
In 1823, the Excise Act was issued in Scotland which made it less easy for illicit distilleries to operate. This effectively ‘legalised’ whisky distilling.
