On Monday 5th October, The Last Drop Distillers team were guests of Peter Prentice, Chairman of The Keepers of The Quaich, at their biannual banquet at stunning Blair Castle, in the Scottish Highlands.

The Keepers of The Quaich is an exclusive and international society that recognises those who have shown outstanding commitment to the Scotch Whisky Industry.

Our Chairman James Espey OBE was one of the Society's principal founders back in 1988 and its Chairman from 1997 to 2000, and thus with great excitement he was invited back as Guest Speaker at this year's October banquet, joining the ranks of HRH Prince Charles, former USA President Ronald Reagan, HRH Princess Anne, former South African President De Klerk, HRH Prince Albert of Monaco and many others who have spoken in the past. 

James invited the attendees to an insightful 'trip down memory lane' recalling the time and spirit in which The Keepers of The Quaich was founded, and stressed the importance of long-term Brand Building to secure the future of Scotch Whisky for generations to come.
