It’s a busy summer at Balblair Distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Not only are they making whisky, but the distillery is also a movie set this week, the site of a wedding next month, and two days after the wedding…construction starts on the distillery’s first-ever visitors center. Distillery manager John MacDonald tells us about his hectic summer in this week’s episode. In the news…plenty of new whiskies, including two charity bottlings, and dueling boycotts over the conflict in the Middle East.
