Whisky is all about creating memories and evoking emotions and as part of our Father’s Day series, we are exploring the relationship between The Glenturret whisky and how it connects different generations of the same family.
Below our Brand Ambassador Jamie Morrison tells us how The Glenturret whisky strengthened the bond between himself and his late grandfather.
“My late grandfather, forever to me as auld Jock was a huge lover of whisky and all things Glenturret. When I began working at the distillery in 2015, he and I would sit and chat about the production, the history of the place (which he loved) and most importantly which bottle he wanted to buy next. Always with a caveat that he wanted a wee taste first!
He visited the distillery regularly and every time I saw the happiness on his face. I think looking back now, his smile showed a huge sense of pride that I worked here, which also made him purchase pretty much everything we’ve released in the last seven years.
He loved talking about The Glenturret to anyone who would listen. I think he most enjoyed our Glenturret 30 Years Old, often commenting that it was “awesome” and that he wondered if there were any more samples going, he had great taste in whisky, that’s for sure.
A legendary gentleman, The Glenturret brought us closer together and created some amazing moments for us, these memories will remain with me forever and I will be toasting a dram to him this Father’s Day.”
