I’m a Scot by marriage only, but this is devastating news
More than 10,000 bottles of single malt Scotch Whisky have been stolen in a raid, police have revealed.
The bottles of Bowmore Islay Single Malt, with a retail value of almost £300,000, were taken from a haulier in Hertfordshire on Tuesday.
The haul included various aged bottles of Bowmore, from 12 years old to 25 years old.
EB and I spent our honeymoon driving around Northern Scotland in a much-too-small rental car, and we did visit the occasional distillery.
You’d never drink the stuff if you had a wiff of the residue, but there’s something about a single malt that’ll make a Scot out of just about anyone.
A lump of coal for Christmas for the mastermind behind this cruel assault on Scottish sensibility (and good taste).
I think we should all visit the Bowmore web site and pay our respect.
Hang on, I see you can even order on line or rent one of their cottages. Rent a cottage at a Scotch distillery ? Hmmmm, I might be busy for a bit…
