I love single malt scotch, but Glenfiddich, though a respectable brand, has never made my list of favourites. But now comes the news that a rich real-estate dealer with a funny hair-do has banned the drink from his restaurants. Glenfiddich’s crime? The distillery choose as its ‘Scot of the Year’ a farmer who refused to sell his land so the developer could build a golf course on it.
So perhaps I’ll buy bottle and toast the farmer, Michael Forbes. Does anyone know the Gaelic for “Piss-off, Donald”?
