The pair chatted about the 'up-cycled' centre piece of the distillery's visitor centre, which saw coppersmiths from Diageo Abercrombie in Alloa taking a redundant mash tun and transforming it into a bespoke whisky tasting bar.

Originally from Diageo’s Clynelish Distillery in Brora on the north east coast of Scotland, the mash tun has been completely transformed into the excellent setting for our latest video whisky tasting.

Driven by a passion for all things drinks-related, Sean writes for The Scotsman extensively on the subject. He can also sometimes be found behind the bar at the world famous Potstill bar in Glasgow where he continues to enhance his whisky knowledge built up over 10 years advising customers from all over the world on the wonders of our national drink. Recently, his first book was published. Dubbed Gin Galore, it explores Scotland's best gins and the stories behind those that make them.
