MND campaigner Weir visited Glenkinchie Distillery in East Lothian – the closest Diageo distillery to his Borders home – to pick a cask of Scotch whisky which will be donated by Diageo to raise money for his My Name'5 Doddie Foundation.
He was joined by distillery manager Ramsay Borthwick, Diageo whisky specialist Louise Martin and apprentice whisky specialist Eve Murphy at the Glenkinchie warehouse, where they helped him select a cask of 19-year-old single malt which will now be bottled for the charity.
Weir said: “As a big whisky fan, it’s been great to join the team at Glenkinchie to select a special cask for my foundation. The liquid we’ve chosen comes from a sherry cask which has been aged for 19 years. It really is a fine dram and we are delighted to have the support of Diageo and Glenkinchie."
