Tomintoul Distillery, producers of Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky are delighted to announce a sponsorship arrangement with Joe Miller.

Already very popular in the USA and Europe the sport is attracting more and more competitors and spectators alike. Media coverage is growing with major channels giving excellent exposure to the sport.
The sponsorship deal will enable Tomintoul Single Malt Scotch Whisky to display its logo prominently at key events in which Joe will participate like the World Matchplay Championship, the European Long Drive series (LDET), the World Long Drive Championship and various corporate and media outings. Additionally Joe will participate in various Tomintoul events throughout the period ahead:
Duncan Baldwin, Senior Brand Ambassador for Tomintoul said:
“This is a unique opportunity to provide international publicity for our malt whisky at this stage of its development alongside an exciting and relatively new form of competition golf which is increasing exponentially. We are looking forward to maximising brand exposure and furthering the growth in demand for Tomintoul in key markets around the world which match the locations of the major events of long distance golf driving.”
George Gros, President of VII Management, agents for Joe Miller added:
“We are delighted to join up with Tomintoul, as we embrace their introduction into Sports Sponsorship and Golf. The tie up comes in a successful period for Joe, who already has a prominent global media reach, where he remains unbeaten in Europe for the past two years while embarking on further World Championship titles. This association again highlights a strong connection between Whisky and golf and, with our sponsorship, we aim to honor the core values that Tomintoul share with this great sport; innovation, integrity, inner strength and tradition, whilst sharing an appreciation of not only whisky but the true spirit of golf”.

“Canna it be” Burns Night already?
With some great piping, sumptuous haggis, tatties and neeps, and a night of reciting appropriate poetry - Burns birthday looms very close indeed and the traditional celebration of this life and poetry is upon once us again!
Robert Burns (1759-1796) was born on the 25 January and we may pay tribute to him, his life and works, all year round – nevertheless his birthday has become a “beacon” to celebrate this infamous man and his poetry.
Why not accompany this delightful evening with some Tomintoul Single Malt– prefer a peated malt? Why not try our Tomintoul Peaty Tang.
Or celebrate this delightful evening with some Glencadam Single Malt – a rather delicate 10 year old or a rather dignified 15 year old may be perfect for this occasion!

the Season of The “Christmas Party”
Once again it is that time of year, all the pubs, bars and restaurants are overflowing with merry enjoyment as we all fall victim to the overindulging winter celebrations!
Amongst arranging our own personal social calendars of catch-ups with long lost friends, dinners with relatives and romantic days out with loved ones; we also have the more formal but certainly no less merrier Christmas bash. And here at Angus Dundee, we are no exception!
As we set off from our various abodes, from Scotland and England alike – to the debonair Dorchester in London for our lovely Christmas Party last Saturday, none knew the exquisite evening planned ahead. From aperitif to desert, the party was a success!
The chatter and laughter of all the colleagues with their “plus 1” at the pre-dinner bar proved the beginning of the convivial and family sense of the company. We were then ushered through to the beautifully laid out dinning room , as our evening’s entertainment fluttered in with Dawn Harvey, our lovely receptionist, performing two dances with her belly-dancing troupe. As the evening moved on, so did the merriment and entertainment. We were spellbound by Jean Hillman’s singing, accompanied by Gary on the baby Grand, which finished on the captivating rendition of “I dreamed a dream” from “les Miserables”.
We were then delighted to have Terry Hillman come forward to do a lovely speech, with a traditional resume of the past year, linking it to the global Scotch Whisky industry and the developments at Angus Dundee Distillers throughout its time.
The medals and cup were then awarded by Tania Hillman to the participant of the inaugural Angus Dundee Golf competition played the previous day. Robert Fleming was kind enough to say a few words and suggested that maybe a golf course in some warmer climate may be more appropriate for the next competition!
Aaron Hillman came forward to say some words of thank you, to his workers and colleagues for another great year – with the hope that we would go from strength to strength, not only as a company but also as a team.
Lorne Mackillop amused us greatly with his annual Christmas speech, not sure the theme this year was as seasonal as former ones. Nevertheless, thank you Lorne for trying to entertain us every year!
Last, but by no means least – Duncan Baldwin, our multi-talented colleague, burst out some great tunes firstly on the piano before playing his guitar and singing his famous adapted songs!
Our evening came to a close, when the youngest member present, Elliot Kendall, one of Terry’s grandsons, came forward to present Terry with a gift of thankfulness from all of us at Angus Dundee - symbolising our recognition and appreciation of Terry and the company. This was a custom-made pen and pencil set made from a stave from an ex-whisky oak barrel.
What a great Bash!
