Bruichladdich. I like the direction they are taking, I like the people involved and I love the whisky.

It is a growing concern with ambitious expansion plans.

Best of all, they already have my name on the bottles!

A closed one, and reopen it! Rosebank, if it was possible (it's not). Port Ellen. Brora. Blackwoods. :wink:

Laphroaig. Thier whiskies are underpriced, and I could make a mint!

Glenmorangie just so I could drink my way through the old casks :D

For something vaguely interesting, Pittyvaich or Imperial?

Ideally I'd like to see North Port going again.

Not to mention huge stills! I too would choose either Imperial or it's sister distillery, Dailuaine that's just on the other side of the River Spey. The awesomely beautiful countryside surrounding these 2 distilleries is a bonus! :D


Cheers!

What did you have in mind?

I think I'd have to make more of the motto Clachan a Choin. It just makes me wet myself when I hear they gave a flag with this motto on to Mer Majesty. :lol:

No offence to the man himself, but I can't see the name attracting me to drink the brand...

Thank you Mr TattieHead :D

My very own distillery! :shock:

I must admit that I thought Mustardhead was more likely to be seen on a Compass Box whisky than on the side of a distillery but courtesy of Springfield's most famous resident.....

If I can drink Sheep Dip, Mustardhead wouldn't be much of a stretch. :lol:

I'd buy Glen Turret...looks great, tastes great.

I'd build a new one. On Shetland. Actually build one, that is, and then close it a year later due to astronomical operational costs.

Not really, i would love to own Scapa or Old P.

Although theMustardhead Distillery is appealing. It has to be Laphroiag for me. If for no other reason than the views out to sea. Magic place.

If you were Bill Gates you could buy every distillery on Islay. For that matter he could probably buy the entire island as well.

I'd buy Glenturret and have that bloody Grouse for dinner and have a proper visitor centre aimed at how good the whisky is not how good the adverts are! :evil:
