Blog: Olly WehringGlenfiddich Makes My Dreams Come True

Olly Wehring | 22 July 2011

A quick Friday afternoon shout out to the folk at William Grant & Sons' UK sales and marketing division, First Drinks for their assistance in allowing me to die happy.

Thanks to William Grants' sponsorship of Mojo music magazine's annual awards, through its Glenfiddich single malt brand, First Drinks invited me to join them at table last night. Now, those of you that follow just-drinks on Twitter (and, if not, why not?) will have been pestered by my crowing last night throughout the evening.

What I didn't tweet was that I met one of my musical heroes at the event. And, if you like your music proper, then you may have heard of him too.

But, if that doesn't impress you, then how about this: There was a Beatle in the room!

A Beatle!

And Brian Wilson!

And Jimmy Page!

And Martha Reeves!

Thanks to Chris Mason and Sonia Bastian at First Drinks, and Kirsty Chant at Touch PR.
