S5 Episode 1 - Malcolm Rennie

A warm welcome to the 5th series of this podcast with an exclusive interview from Rosebank’s Distillery Manager Malcolm Rennie.  Malcolm talks about his luminous career from his start in the industry on Islay with his father to taking the reins at the iconic King of The Lowlands, Rosebank.   The 2 Gordons talk about the ‘closed’ distilleries of the past, Macallan Reach and what they got up to in January while drinking Tamdhu Distinction and Penderyn Portwood.  It looks set for another great series of whisky chat, challenges and guests.  Enjoy!

The Pot Still Bar in Glasgow is a veritable institution with many awards and accolades so what better way to end this season than to visit proprietor Frank Murphy and bring some of the Whisky Unscripted end-of-year fun to this wonderful whisky bar.  There are challenges, a chance meeting from the past, talk of Ed Sheerin and Prince Albert of Monaco plus a small trip to Glengoyne at the end!  We will return!  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Slainte`

The 2 Gordon's talk 'sustainability' post Cop26 and what this means for the whisky industry. Mr Dundas unveils the very latest Tamdhu - The Tamdhu Quercus Alba Distinction while Mr Dallas whisks us to Amsterdam with exclusive interviews from The Art of Drink from Ross Lawrence of Loch Lomond Distillery, Dale Perry from Douglas Laing, Koenraad De Clercq from Filliers Distillery and organiser Luuk olde Monnikhof from De Monnick Dranken.  If this was a Highball you'd have to remove the ice as there's so much whisky chat we can hardly fit it all in!  Enjoy!

The 2 Gordon's are on the road quite literally with Gordon Dundas in a Mercedes on an Autobahn out of Hamburg with a rather expensive bottle of whisky strapped in the back seat.  Meanwhile Gordon Dallas still in his 'sauna' plays audio from the recent whisky festival in Ayr Town Hall - Whisky An 'A That with Robbie's Dram Club.

You'll hear from Ambassadors (and a Master Blender) from Lindores, Glenfarclas, Tomintoul, Tomatin, Mackmyra, Benromach and The Glasgow Distillery as well as Robin the organiser and some happy attendees.  

Now this is what podcasts were made for!
