Willie Cochrane retired last month after 39 years at Jura Distillery, and spent the last 11 of them as the manager of the Isle of Jura’s largest business (and only distillery) before turning over the keys to his hand-picked successor, Graham Logan. He’s spent most of the last few weeks away from the island traveling with his wife and spending time with their three children and grandchildren – but Willie slowed down enough to spend some time with us for this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth. The UK’s Brexit vote and its potential impact on the whisky industry dominates the news this week, and we’ll also have some of your comments on this week’s Your Voice. We’ll also kick off a contest with our newest sponsor…listen for details on how you could win one of five Speyburn goodie bags!
