Bottled in tribute to an old Glengoyne Distillery tradition, the Teapot Dram series pays tribute to the dramming days gone by. Workers at the distillery would be given three fingers of whisky, three times each day. To save face, the less seasoned stillman would discreetly pour some of their untouched drams into a copper teapot which sat on the canteen windowsill, ready for their colleagues to enjoy.

We we’re gifted the afternoon tea to try, still thinking about those salmon scones. Fred was jealous when he heard that we had goodies, but sez he trusts our opinion on cakes and salmon
