He’s just started work on the distillery he’s wanted to build in Huntly for several years, is in the middle of turning an old supermarket into a new bottling hall and gift shop, entering the furniture business, and sponsoring a race car with plans for next year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. We’ll catch up with Euan on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. In the news, Diageo completes its acquisition of India’s United Spirits, Edrington and Isle of Arran report profits, while Arran’s also releasing a devilish new whisky as well.
