Tim Morrison, former owner of the Morrison-Bowmore portfolio (Bowmore, Glen Garioch, & Auchentoshan) and current owner of A.D. Rattray stops in for a chat. We talk about the whisky glut of the early 1980's, the closure of Port Ellen, the state of the independent cask market, and the future of owning a whisky brand. I know I said I wouldn't write anything new about the industry, but I never said I wouldn't talk about it! This is a very open discussion, perhaps a bit too open. Nothing is off the table. If you've ever wondered about what we're talking about behind the scenes, this is it.
