Mackillop's Choice independent whisky bottler was founded in 1996 by Angus Dundee Distillers (owner of the Glencadam and Tomintoul distilleries)
It is named after Lorne Mackillop. Lorne Mackillop is the heir to the chief of the Mackillop Clan.
After seven years extensive training in wines and spirits, Lorne Mackillop became a member of the Institute of Masters of Wine in London in 1984, and, at that time, was the youngest person to be accepted as a Master of Wine. The Institute presides over the most demanding examinations in wines and spirits in the world and, since its foundation in 1953, only a few members worldwide have passed these examinations and been considered worthy of this prestigious qualification. His comprehensive knowledge of whisky is reflected in the quality of "Mackillop's Choice".
The tasting will also showcase Tomintoul and Angus Dundee's other single cask range, Montgomerie's.
