Paul Clough, head of warehouse operations at the distillery has retired after many years with us. Having been employed as Head Warehouseman back in 2005, he shortly became head of the Blend centre at the Distillery along with the warehouse operations. We would like to wish Paul the very best in his retirement and most of all, a very big thank you for his services and input into the running of the Distillery.

On their route to the annual Alford Motorcycle Convention Gathering, the crowds gathered in Tomintoul on the eve of a mass ride out on Sunday morning.
Saturday 7th September 2013 Tomintoul hosted the pre-Alford Motorcycle Convention Gathering. There was live music and entertainment in the form of the Extreme Wheelie Machine and Bike Displays by the Bon Accord MCC with demonstration by trials rider BRAIN MARR, before the band DC79 took to the village hall stage rocking the night away.
After a good breakfast, the bikes headed up and over the Lecht and down Donside, exploring some of the most beautiful sceneries and riding some of the highest roads in the country!
The furthest travelled biker attending the Gathering won a lovely bottle of Tomintoul 10 year old Single Malt Whisky. Hopefully this will keep his cockles warm on the long journey home!
In its 44th year, the IWSC is one of the world’s leading competitions; aiming to promote the quality and excellence of the world’s best wines, spirits and liqueurs.
We are therefore delighted to announce that:
