Blog: Olly WehringNorth British Distilleries - An apology

Olly Wehring | 12 June 2012

It would appear that I owe North British Distilleries an apology.

In the weekly newsletter sent to just-drinks' members yesterday (11 June), I suggested that the facility, which is jointly-owned by Diageo and The Edrington Group, was found to be the source for the Legionnaires' disease outbreak in Scotland last week.

It transpires however, that this is not actually the case. As things stand, Scotland's health executive has served an improvement notice on the company for alleged failures to adequately control the risk of legionella in the cooling tower. The facility has not been identified as the source.

My apologies, folks.
