CalMac get an extended database of contact names and addresses for marketing their ferry services and the beautiful Isle of Harris showcases its wonders.

It’s interesting to note that it was the then endlessly inventive Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay, under the then leadership of the unmatchable Mark Reynier, which first introduced the now enthusiastically take up practice of whisky distilleries distilling other spirits.
Who will forget the adventure of a racing car tnansported to Islay in Bruichladdich’s colours  to  be driven by James May – and fuelled on Bruichladdich’s new spirit, Octomore?

And there was – and is, the celebrated The Botanist gin, with Islay aromatics and distilled in the ‘Ugly Betty’ still Mr Reynier recovered from history and put to very good use [follows by The Silver Gatling] in his signature flurry of light hearted and irresistible publicity. Those were the days.
