Q&A: Alasdair Day, R&B Distillers co-founder!

We meet Alasdair Day, R&B Distillers, to chat Tweeddale blends, his whisky heritage and what the future holds for blended Scotch whiskies…

R&B Distillers is a company on a fascinating journey. Inspired by a mysterious old ledger, its Tweeddale blended Scotch whiskies challenge long-held conventions around the category. Its first distillery, Isle of Raasay, is bringing jobs and tourists to the eponymous little-known Hebridean island. And there’s a second distillery in the works in Scotland’s Borders region, too.

Earlier this week we stopped in at Searcys at The Gherkin for a sneak preview of what the Chivas Regal UK team has up its sleeves this autumn – and it’s pretty fun if you see yourself as a budding whisky blender.

Following the success of its 2016 Chivas The Blend pop-up, the team has decided to bring back the concept for another year, and it all kicks off at London Cocktail Week from 2 October, at 133 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG.

The aim isn’t just to have a good time. Whisky might be growing in popularity, but blended Scotch in particular sometimes gets a bit of a raw deal – and the Chivas team wants to change that.
