THE GREAT ISLAY SWIMJuly 8, 2017
The guys from The Great Islay Swim dropped by the distillery yesterday for a chat and a few drams with Anthony. Chad and Justin, who both hail from New York, are attempting to swim around Islay, stopping at each distillery to collect a ration of whisky as they go. The 100 litre cask which will be filled by the time they finish their swim, will be bottled as The Pillage Blend and sold in aid of the RNLI. An epic challenge and a fantastic cause!
