Latest Whisky News - Isle of Skye Whisky the toast of the Clan MacLeod Parliament - 20th Sept, 2010

Held in Dunvegan on Clan MacLeod’s home island of Skye every four years, over 170 clans folk from overseas, including America, Tasmania, Malta and South Africa attended the Clan MacLeod Parliament from Saturday 24 – Friday 30 July.

20 September 2010, Edinburgh: Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky, owned by independent family company Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd, was the Official Whisky Sponsor of the Clan MacLeod Parliament World Gathering 2010.

Held in Dunvegan on the Clan MacLeod’s home island of Skye every four years, the Clan MacLeod Parliament ran from 24 –30 July. Over 170 clans folk attended, many from as far as America, Tasmania, Malta and South Africa.

As well as supplying the whisky for the Clan MacLeod Parliament finale ball, each attendee received a miniature of Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky to sample and take home. Ian Macleod Distillers also provided four limited edition decanters of Isle of Skye 21 Years Old Blended Scotch Whisky and one bottle of the extremely rare Isle of Skye 50 Years Old Blended Scotch Whisky for a silent auction, that raised over £800 for charity.

Iain Weir, Marketing Director of Ian Macleod Distillers commented: “We are incredibly happy to be supporting the Clan MacLeod Parliament and celebrate the history and culture of Skye and the Clan MacLeod.

“Created from Ian Macleod’s original family recipe, Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky seemed the perfect fit to toast the return of the MacLeod diaspora to their native island and gives those from further afield the opportunity to taste the high quality blended Scotch whisky, perhaps for the first time.”

Dr Malcolm Macleod, OBE, President of the Associated Clan MacLeod Societies, said: “This was the sixteenth Clan MacLeod Parliament World Gathering to be held in Dunvegan, the spiritual home of many MacLeods whose ancestors left Scotland to begin new lives overseas.

“I thoroughly enjoyed welcoming some of their descendants from all over the world and renewing friendships that have built up over the years of these wonderful gatherings.”

The week long event included visits to sites of historical and cultural significance to the Clan including climbing MacLeod’s Table, attending the Dunvegan show and a visit to the residents of the Orbost Estate on Raasay.

The modern Clan MacLeod Parliament is based on the definition of a Parliament as "a meeting or assembly for conference on public or national affairs". The Parliament is a world gathering of MacLeods with the purpose of bringing together MacLeods from all over the world to talk about the Clan.
