That's the spirit, as they say, but not in this context!

Instead of draining away waste water at this distillery someone opened the wrong valve and thousands of litres of prime whisky was lost down the sewers. The sewer men said they could smell it but I'd dare hazard a guess that a few litres may have been salvaged by some of them!

Well, he who dares wins as it's said by some! TC.

I had enough trouble explaining to Customs some years ago one broken bottle of alcohol in the lab. I had to keep the top of the bottle to show them it was still sealed.

Never new that they had any remaining bottling plants in Dumbarton most were closed years ago.

I know they still have lots of warehouses but they are just for storage.

I suppose it is still a big loss but years ago it took about a £1-£1.50 to make a bottle of whiskey and the rest was mainly tax I would imagine that would still be about the same now.

Back to the Whiskey Galore days where the islanders were the beneficiary's now only the vermin are.

What a waste.

Looks like they have just the one left just in the outskirts of Dumbarton and Renton just off the Stirling road.

It is a new one to me but has probably been there for about 20 years.

So this was not the opening of a new night club then? The Whiskey a Go GO.

It ends up going down the drain eventually.

Don't we all just that the FE is in the background somewhere groaning.
