New Islay Pipe Band Single CaskMay 11, 2015
We are very proud to have sponsored the Islay Pipe Band since 2012, the band has been hugely successful over the years and are a fantastic advertisement for Islay. In the past few years our sponsorship has taken the form of a cask of whisky selected by John MacLellan, bottled and sold from the distillery with all the proceeds going to the Pipe Band. This year’s Islay Pipe Band single cask is a bourbon barrel filled in 2010 and finished a Pedro Ximenez sherry cask for 2 months prior to bottling. Due to the nature of the bottling we are only able to accept cash payments at the distillery shop. The release will available from Monday the 18th of May.
