Latest News - Whisky industry - Glengoyne Distillery - A Celebration of Scotland’s Finest - 10th June, 2009 

10 June 2009, Broxburn: Scotland has earned a world class reputation in fields as diverse as the arts, business and sport. In celebration of this innovative, inspiring and entrepreneurial spirit, four award-winning Scottish brands have come together to recognise the very best of today’s home-grown talent - Scotland’s Finest.

Acclaimed independent companies, Glengoyne Highland Single Malt, Loch Fyne Oysters and Tom Lewis of Monachyle Mhor (MHOR), will be joined by Tannoy, one of the most prestigious audio brands in the world, to host a celebratory event in honour of Scotland’s Finest and most respected individuals. 

Taking place on 15th June in Glasgow’s Audio Saloon, the event will be attended by the very best of Scotland’s artists, business leaders, musicians and politicians, to name a few.

Scotland’s Finest collectively builds on the four brands common values, shared passions and commitment to tradition, craftsmanship and outstanding quality.

Iain Weir, Marketing Director for Ian Macleod Distillers, brand owners of Glengoyne commented: “Glengoyne, Loch Fyne Oysters, MHOR and Tannoy are all successful, independent Scottish businesses who have built strong reputations in UK and aboard. In these challenging times, working jointly with like-minded brands who share a similar business outlook and premium customer base, is mutually beneficial. It strengthens and reinforces key messages and reaches out to new audiences.

“It is a thrill and an honour to be bringing together so many of our nation’s most inspiring and talented individuals at our Scotland’s Finest event. The first we hope, of many.

On the night, Tom Lewis will prepare a delicious feast for guests, making full use of Scotland’s natural larder and succulent delicacies from Loch Fyne Oysters. While Glengoyne Distillery will provide an exclusive tasting of its oldest and most valuable Single Malt ever produced in its 175 year history, the Glengoyne 40 Years Old.  

Founded in 1926, Tannoy is one of the world’s leading specialists in Residential Audio, Installation Speakers and Studio Monitors. A brand name that can be found on many prestigious sound installations throughout the world, examples include the Sydney Opera House, the Hong Kong Convention Centre and the London Palladium Theatre. Its newest addition in residential hi-fi line up, Definition, will also be launched at the Scotland’s Finest event.

Owned by independent family company, Ian Macleod Distillers, Glengoyne, Scotland’s most beautiful distillery, has been producing its unique and complex, Highland Single Malt Whisky for over 175 years. Using methods passed down for generations, Glengoyne has nurtured and perfected the art of producing the authentic taste of Malt Whisky, untainted by peat smoke. The result is a portfolio of multi-award winning whiskies including the core 10, 17 and 21 Years Old range, as well as special limited edition Single Malts, released each year.

A true food lover and entrepreneur, Tom Lewis of Monachyle Mhor, rose to fame as a chef contestant on the BBC’s Great British Menu. Beginning with the award-wining Monachyle Mhor Hotel and Restaurant in the heart of the Trossachs, Tom now also runs a fishmonger, bakery, tearoom and livestock farm, under the MHOR brand. Deeply committed to using and promoting the best produce Scotland has to offer, Tom has become a passionate advocate of combining age-old Scottish methods with innovation and contemporary flair.

For 30 years, Loch Fyne Oysters has been dedicated to enterprise with respect for animals, people and ecology. From humble beginnings selling oysters from a roadside stall, Loch Fyne Oysters is now one of Scotland’s best known brands.  Located on the spectacular shores of Loch Fyne, the business now includes oyster and mussel farms, traditional smokehouse, Oyster Bar (the original forerunner to Loch Fyne Restaurants) and farm shop. One thing that has not changed over the years is their absolute commitment to only the highest quality and freshest produce from sustainable sources, reared and prepared using traditional methods.
