Dram Beating

In order to toast their sell out Beat The Drum event held at Loch Ness recently, Scottish super group Runrig got together with award-winning whisky merchant Duncan Taylor of Huntly to create a special commemorative malt.

The day long, Beat The Drum event blended music with a particularly Highland flavour.

The same description could equally apply to the chosen whisky, a Duncan Taylor special bottling of one of Scotland’s premium malts of 20 years old. It was selected at a private tasting at the company premises in Huntly and afterwards band member Iain Bayne commented, ‘‘There was no better way to mark our involvement than to do so in the company of one of the finest, most vibrant and special of Highland malts.”

Euan Shand from Duncan Taylor added: ‘‘This is one of the most exciting private bottlings we have ever been involved in. The marriage of whisky and music has always been strong.’’
