Saw this in the Press & Journal

Residents in the Huntly area with an eye on local history and a nose for one of the area's premier whiskies could be in the running for a seasonal Year of Homecoming job on their doorstep.

Stirlingshire-based Ben Riach, which recently bought the Glendronach Distillery at Forgue, has unveiled plans for a £250,000 marketing initiative to promote the north-east malt.

It has created a visitor centre at Glendronach, and now two guides are to be recruited to highlight the history of the distillery to tourists in the summer.

No experience is necessary, and the jobs will suit people who live locally and "have a passion"? for Glendronach whisky.

BenRiach Distillery Company marketing manager Kerry White said yesterday: "We are working hard to reposition Glendronach as a top malt whisky and our marketing is targeting visitors from the UK and overseas.

"We are now looking for two local and enthusiastic, reliable individuals who can assist with distillery tours and the day-to-day running of a new shop and help bring the visitor centre to life."?

Applicants should be able to work 26 hours a week, including regular weekend shifts. They should also enjoy meeting people and be determined to make visits a memorable and enjoyable experience.

CVs should be sent to info@glendronachdistillery/co.uk, or telephone 01324 682220.

The distillery was founded in 1826 by whisky entrepreneur James Allardice.

Glendronach " Gaelic for Valley of the Bramble " takes its name from the Dronach Burn that winds through the distillery.

This would be my idea of the perfect semi retired job. Although it is a few years to i retire and i dont live anywhere near Huntly.
