Glenrothes tribute to John Sutherland
Just want to inform you that John Sutherland Distillery Manager of
Glenrothes died last Saturday.
Here is the statement of Luke Tegner, Glenrothes brand director:
"It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that John Sutherland,
the Distillery Manager at Glenrothes, died at the weekend. John was
taken into hospital last week, initially to Elgin then to Aberdeen and
Edinburgh. He went home at the end of the week, apparently never really
felt well, and died at home on Saturday morning.
John was so much more than the distillery manager. First and foremost a
true friend, John was a great character - larger than life, with a
fantastic and wicked sense of humour. He was an active and devoted
ambassador for The Glenrothes, fully involved both at the heart of its
production and as an evangelist on a global level.
I'm sure you will be as shocked and devastated as we are, as we will
miss him immeasurably. It goes without saying that our thoughts are with
Our condolences go out to his family and friends.
