Blog: Olly WehringWhisky, whisky everywhere...

Olly Wehring | 1 March 2013

We all like a laugh at someone else's expense, don't we? Witness, for example, the gleeful coverage today and yesterday of a whisky spill at Pernod Ricard's Chivas Brothers bottling operations up in Scotland.

When we spoke to the folk at Chivas this morning, they played down the volumes being quoted, but conceded that “a significant amount” of Scotch went down the plughole at its Dumbarton bottling facility on Tuesday evening.

More seriously, the unit was at pains to point out that none of the whisky hit any rivers in the area. “We have informed Scottish Water and other relevant authorities,” Chivas said.

You wouldn't catch me being so wasteful. I have a rule that I must sup the melted ice from my whisky glass the morning after.

What?
