It’s a big trip for a wee sip

Daily Mirror - - POLLYHUDSON -

AN am­a­teur pi­lot made a 1,000-mile round trek for a bot­tle of his favourite whisky.

Charles Pat­ter, 67, flew his four-seater from Grimsby, Lincs, to John O’Groats to spend £33 on an Old Pul­teney 12 Year Old sin­gle malt from the dis­tillery in Wick.

The 67-year-old, from Newark, Notts, was treated to a tour of the plant when staff learned of his mis­sion.

And Charles said: “I like a dram of good whisky be­fore din­ner – and Old Pul­teney is my favourite.”
