Last year, 250,000 people visited the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. The tour includes a free dram of Scotch, and that’s a lot of drams to pour! We’ll hear more about the Centre from its founder and managing director, Alastair McIntosh. In the news, Dave “Robbo” Robertson leaves Jon, Mark, and Robbo’s — and perhaps Edrington Group — for parts unknown (perhaps Whyte & MacKay?), there’s a new vintage from The Glenrothes, Maker’s Mark is shutting down the stills for summer maintenance, and more whisky events to plan your next vacation around.
