    Abertillery, South Wales

    Just to let you know that a package arrived from Dorset this morning...

    The sun is shining on the snow-flecked mountains to welcome the Quaich!

    Photos to follow in due course!

    Are you taking the Quaich to the source of the Penderyn Single Malt? I will be so jealous......

    Re: Abertillery, South Wales

    Now there's a thought! Perhaps they might give me a free sample to try in the Quaich!

    Great to see the quaich making another appearance McClef. I think it would be grand to have the local distillery donate a small dram with which to toast.

    As we have seen, the quaich can pull off some amazing things, good luck to you.

    Re: Abertillery, South Wales

    Now, I am not wishing to stir up the dust, but what has happened to the quaich - and photos of its adventures - or have I missed something (which is quite possible)?

    Take care,
    Ham.

    Fear not Hamish you have not.

    A combination of weather and a stomach bug have delayed matters. Now more up to taking out and it will be visiting around the area starting this coming weekend.

    I loved being able to examine the Bicknell Tartan sample in the box - very nice!

    Phew! That's a relief Trefor. I was afeared that something ghastly had happened to the treasured quaich. So sorry to hear of your 'problem' though and I am pleased to hear that you are on the mend, or have been mended!

    Many thanks for that Trefor. I have to admit to being very proud of it.

    Take care,
    Ham.

    Re: Abertillery, South Wales

    Right I am now starting to sort out the photos!

    Here is the Quiach itself seen with my new Canon EOS Camera. It contains a wee drap o' Laphroaig Quarter Cask to welcome it.




    As has been suggested, I visited the Penderyn Distillery bit due to a senior moment, forgot to take the Quiach! Nevertheless, here are some photos of the visit and a connection will be shown in due course by way of expiation.

    The exterior of the Penderyn Distillery.



    The entrance.

    Some (I am pretty certain) empty barrels as they are displayed outside.



    Me posing in from of the barrels in my new Black Stewart kilt.



    Another view of the building.
