Whiskey Hotline Hits the Road: Back from Scotland

Ever wonder barrel sizes? Barrel, Hogshead and Butt

 

Back from Scotland and getting settled in. A quick recap of everything that happened since I checked in on Day 6

 

Pulling samples at Signatory Edradour Warehouses

We made an unexpected discovery: Parkmore, the mysterious shuttered distillery right outside of Dufftown. Parkmore is being used as a massive storage facility for barrels owned by Edradour, and it’s loaded with Highland Park and Macallan. The distillery was built in 1894 but has been silent since 1931. And don’t tell anybody, but we also snuck into Glen Keith, which is just now firing up production again.

Then it was off to London for a requisite stop at Compass Box. We’re in talks to create a custom Binny’s Compas Box vatting. Keep an eye here on the Binny’s Blog and on the Whiskey Hotline.

Things in London took a turn to the beer side of things. We visited one of the Greene King brewery facilities. They make a lot of great stuff, this particular facility makes Abbot Ale and Old Speckled Hen.

Next was the Cambridge Camra Beer Festival. With hundreds of firkins of real ales, plus Belgians and ciders. This thing was overwhelming to the point of cognitive dissonance. So much beer. One of the best ADD nightmares ever.
