Open Day 2013

Open Day 2013

This years Open Day was held at Springbank Distillery, and it was a great success! We had visitors from every corner of the world present. On the Wednesday night, 22nd May there was a very exclusive dinner held in the Kiln at Springbank. The dinner was hosted by Frank McHardy (Director of Production) and Gavin McLachlan (Distillery manager of Springbank and Mitchell’s Glengyle). Wine, champagne and very special whisky was drunk and a delicious meal with Scottish delicatessen was consumed. Everybody left the kiln with a smile on their face.

The Open day started at 11am on the 23rd of May, there was a market on the bottling hall carpark with local businesses displaying their goods, a beer tent serving Loch Fyne Ales and a special Brew called Fynebank, beer brewed using Springbank malted barley! We had live music, Alan Anderson (the Whisky Stand up comedian), tours of both distilleries and a huge BBQ.

On the Friday, for the brave, there was the annual golf competition at Machrihanish golfcourse. There were some sore heads, but the fresh air did them all the good!
