Gateshead Whisky News 30.12.2022

That last whisky news of 2022 is here, Loungers! Connas has dragged himself away from festive dramming to bring you up to date before the New Year!

Sustaining Tomatin

Tomatin Distillery has won the title of 'Sustainable Distillery of the Year' at the Icons of Whisky Awards. Congrats team!

Record Auction Stuff

Sotheby's in New York, set a new auction record for Pappy Van Winkle when a bottle of 23 Year Old Family Reserve sold for $52,500 – more than seventeen times the pre-sale estimate! Whoa!

And Finally!

Clearly the PR teams have all taken time off for the winter break, therefore it’s been a quiet one this week, therefore I feel obliged to furnish you with yet another example of my outstanding sense of humour…

“A mobile phone and a firework were arrested on New Year's Eve.

One was charged and the other was let off.”

You’re welcome!

See you in the new year, folks. Have a Good one!
