It’s been a busy year at GlenDronach and BenRiach distilleries…the investor group led by Billy Walker added GlenDronach to their portfolio less than a year ago, and are already revamping the entire range.

In the news, the Scottish Government may offer Diageo public funding to keep the Johnnie Walker bottling plant in Kilmarnock open, Heaven Hill unveils the latest release in Parker Beam’s Heritage Collection of bourbons…and tasting notes for some new spirits.
