You may want to set your video for this:

BBC 2 Scotland are showing a program :- The Whisky Dream
It is on tonight Tue 15 Jan, 10:00 pm - 10:30 pm

When two English wine merchants joined forces with two Gaelic-speaking islanders for a Scotch Whisky Adventure.

What it says about it on the BBC2 website:
Quote:
This new documentary takes a side-ways look at one of Scotland's highest profile industries, Scotch whisky production.

The Whisky Dream, made by Demus Productions, is a wry look at the amazing tale of two English wine merchants Mark and Mary Reynier, who together with Gaelic speaking islanders Jim McEwan and Duncan MacGillivray, embarked on a venture some whisky purists dubbed "a hair-brained scheme'.

In December 2000, eccentric vintner Mark Reynier overcame astonishing odds to raise the £7.5million needed to buy Bruichladdich, one of the world's last 19th Century malt whisky distilleries. Aiming to recreate a malt whisky which "died' with American Prohibition in 1929, they have further "stirred the pot' in the whisky industry by, controversially, using a wide variety of wine casks to mature the spirit.

The Whisky Dream witnesses through their eyes the birth of the first new Scottish single malt for a decade, debunks some whisky mythology and goes behind the marketing hype to uncover the art of the master blender. MD of the company Mary Reynier says: "We've created something new, brought into the world something that's never been seen:And we've created it ourselves."?

Hi Keith,
I remember Laddie did a film about 2-3 years ago named " 4 man and a dram" or something, that was good too.
It looks like they "The Laddie Boys" are enjoying them selves on Islay.

They deserve the success they are now seeing at Bruichladdich as it was a bit of a bumpy ride to get to where they are today. Long may there success continue.

If you cant catch the program on BBC2 tonight and you are interested in the Bruichladdich story you may enjoy reading this piece By Jim Gilchrist at The Scotsman:

Hi Alastair, William,
a lovely and interesting story about the men behind Bruichladdich. I still like the original Laddies, not so much the enhanced verious of different wood finishes. Confused
Altough the Port Charlotte (bloodtub) is great at cask strength !! Top Malt
