The Scottish town of Oban celebrated its 200th anniversary this week, and the folks at Oban Distillery fired up a Time Machine to celebrate. They went back to 1823 and found a cousin of the distillery’s founders to explain life as Oban was being settled. “Alan Stevenson” explains some of the history, along with Joanne McCutcher of the Diageo Archives and Oban visitors center manager Carol Bennett. We’ll also hear from Glenmorangie/Ardbeg’s David Blackmore and Knob Creek Whisky Professor Bernie Lubbers, and there’s breaking news on plans to export Nikka whiskies to the U.S.!
