On Friday August 5th The Dowans Hotel held an intimate dinner with our Master Distiller, Robert Fleming. The evening featured the tasting of four Tomintoul expressions (pictured) served alongside a four course meal. The evening also involved a talk held by Robert about the Distillery and how Tomintoul whisky is made.
Read below what The Dowan's Hotel had to say on their event's Facebook page about Robert:
'Robert Fleming has been in the position of Master Distiller at Tomintoul Distillery for over 20 years. As passionate as he is about the area (he was born and bred on the Glenlivet Estate), he is equally, if not more passionate about whisky; you could almost say that it was 'in the family' with four previous generations of his family working as distillers in the area.
A passionate yet humble man, he truly is a recognised master of his industry...even if he might not say that himself!
We are honoured to have him join us for a four course meal, each course specifically paired with one of the fantastic range of expressions that he has been at the helm of creating at Tomintoul. He has promised that there will be something a little extra to finish the evening but he holds onto his secrets like he holds onto his Tomintoul 21 year old so you'll just have to join us to find out what that may be!'
