Latest Whisky News - Ewan McGregor and Eva Green signed bottles of Glengoyneto be auctioned for charity - 28th October, 2009
28 October 2009, Dumgoyne: Ewan McGregor and co-star Eva Green signed bottles of Glengoyne whisky for charity at the recent wrap party for The Last Word, the movie they have just completed filming in Glasgow.
Hosted by Glengoyne Distillery at Govan Town Hall, Chef Tom Lewis of Monachyle Mhor, served up fresh fish and chips from his MHOR fishmongers, along with deep-fried Mars Bars in a Glengoyne 17 Years Old batter, as an ironic representation of Scottish food. The two Glengoyne cocktails, their old favourite The Kilt Lifter and Glengoyne Royale – chosen to celebrate Eva Green’s role in Casino Royale - proved a massive hit with the film stars and crew.
Playing a chef in The Last Word, Ewan spent time with Tom in the kitchen at Monachyle Mhor, sharpening his culinary skills in preparation for the role. Naturally, when the talk turned to the wrap party, Tom Lewis brought in nearby Glengoyne Distillery. Tom and Glengoyne work regularly together promoting their shared passion for promoting Scotland’s exceptional natural larder and their ‘ Real Taste of Malt, Real Taste of Food’ethos.
Ewan and Eva happily signed special label 10 and 17 Years Old bottles of Glengoyne Single Highland Malt Whisky to be passed on to local Beatson Cancer Care Centre and the annual Cash for Kids appeal to auction and raise funds both charities.
The Last Word is expected to premier at the 2010 Edinburgh Film Festival in June.
