True Waste; This Brought Tears To My Eyes.

Technically, this has nothing to do directly with travel. However, it does take place in Scotland, we have readers who live in Scotland, and some of you may travel there. So, in a “Six Degrees of Separation” sort of way, it fits with this website.

Someone at the Chivas factory in Scotland hit the wrong button or opened the wrong valve and instead of sending wastewater into the drains, sent thousands of gallons of scotch there instead.

This factory makes Chivas, Ballantine, and Glenlivet—not exactly the cheap stuff!!!

Luckily, Chivas Brothers said this will not affect supply and there will be plenty of scotch for all to enjoy.

Personally, I think the culprit responsible should be tarred and feathered, drawn and quartered, or forced to fly in the middle seat on a long Ryanair flight. Preferably all at the same time.

After writing the above, I think it’s time to pour myself a “wee dram.”

In a round about way it does pertain to the blog. A Scotch whisky distillery tour has been on my bucket list for quite a while now; smartly timed with the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, of course.

@Neil, Edradour distillery has a good tour and is relatively easy to get to, being only about 40km north of Perth. It's a tiny operation, but very good.

Thanks for the information. I love a well crafted whisky and I prefer to try the "lesser" names, because you can always get the known ones. Here is where my OBOW philosophy would have to be deserted, because I would buy as many bottles as I could legally carry/check with me.

My wife is German and when she went home to visit her mother a couple of years ago, she paid serious fees to bring back a haul of schnapps she just can't get in the States.
