Andy Davidson was in attendance at the unveiling of the new Peacemaker Cask at Macsorleys, Glasgow. Manager Mike Donald had this to say:
“100 years ago Philip MacSorley plied his own brand of whisky across the mahogany bars of his pub at 42 Jamaica Street and last year the MacSorley’s crew set out to resurrect his legendary “Peacemaker” dram.
We set out on a 600 mile round trip to the remote village of Carnish on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides where Mark Tayburn had been busy creating a very unique craft distillery and the first legal spirit on the island in over 170 years.
We came back with a 30 litre oloroso cask of his new make spirit, fresh and clear off his unusual copper stills and left the wood to work it’s magic. When we opened it earlier this year we found a dram inside like no other and named it our Peacemaker batch in honour of old Phil’s drink from decades past.”
