SCOTTISH HOTEL BREAKS WORLD RECORD FOR LARGEST WHISKY COLLECTION

Owner of The Glenesk, Dylan Wren, is a passionate whisky collector and boasts an impressive collection himself, comprising roughly 1,500 bottles. As these whiskies are part of his own private collection and are not for sale, they cannot be added to the total submitted to Guinness World Records.   The Edzell-based hotel serves whisky from every working distillery in Scotland. Its most expensive dram is the Lagavulin 25-year-old costing £248 a measure.   Other notable whiskies on offer include Tomintoul 33-year-old and Port Ellen 33-year-old, as well as some rare bottlings from the Glencadam distillery, now the only working distillery in Angus. Established in 1825, the distillery closed in 2000 only to be reopened in 2003 following its sale to Angus Dundee Distillers.

I mean with all the emails and hot mics on buses, genital grabbing and pants suits and October surprises, your Uncle hadn’t felt that rattled since he had the DTs back in the ‘80s after 3 weeks in Tijuana with a friend named Choyo and his 2 dogs.

The first whisky festival held in Bergen, Norway since it became my new hometown was a bustling two-day community celebration of brown spirits and of beer. It was also great fun. Held in the somewhat labyrinthine back halls and passageways of the Grand Terminus Hotel, the layout of the festival was...
