Scott's Not Sharing! Episode 3: Oh Brother, Where's My Whisky?

A Silent Character - Tweeddale Celebrate Single Grain Whisky

For much of the 20th century, the predominant trend in Scotland was for whisky distilleries to be shutting their doors. Thankfully, that decline is now in reverse: at the end of 2017 there were 126 Scottish Distilleries, with plenty more opening in 2018. Though we are all immensely excited about this new whisky boom, and eager to try new spirits from the likes of Raasay Distillery it’s sad that…
