Paranormal investigators adore distilleries. Often old, echoey buildings combined with a permanently sozzled (back in the day) workforce? Who’d have thought that these conditions would be ripe for countless tales of ghosts and ghouls. From the headless horseman of Bowmore, Tomatin’s ghost dog, Glenronach’s “Sherry Lady” and Glenmorangie’s “White Lady” to the Isle of Jura’s frankly staggering tale of Laird Archibald Campbell, whose response to being caught establishing an illicit still in a cave on the island was to indicate that “the ghost made me do it”. Unexplained noises, doors closing themselves and sudden cold chills – all things which provide plenty of inspiration for product development and distillery tour chit-chat.
