You may have drained the last drop from a bottle this weekend. Some of those attending the Royal National Mod in Stornoway last Friday will have had the first drops from the three-year-old single malt supply produced by the relatively new distillery on the Isle of Lewis, Abhain Dearg. It's right out at Uig and so the supply had to travel quite a way across the island even to reach the centre of Mod activities. The spirit is 46% proof and just 2011 bottles have been produced to mark the occasion. The full story appears in HeraldScotland and so try to acquire a dram now while supplies last. The picture below, of an earlier blend, implies drinks all round. The next cask, of single malt, may take a couple of years to come around.
Scottish Islands Explorer - cheers, when it appears
