Fund rais­ers drop in on Ann an­dale

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - DISTRICT NEWS -

The Wor­ship­ful Com­pany of Dis­tillers parked a fairly eclec­tic col­lec­tion of ve­hi­cles in front of An­nan­dale Dis­tillery’s bonded ware­house re­cently.

The An­nan busi­ness was the first point of call for a fundrais­ing car tour of Scot­tish dis­til­leries by the liv­ery Com­pany which dates from the reign of Charles 1.

They were greeted by the An­nan­dale Dis­tillery own­ers, Pro­fes­sor David Thom­son and Teresa Church.

The site is also cel­e­brat­ing be­ing nom­i­nated for Scot­tish Field Mag­a­zine’s Dis­tillery Visi­tor Ex­pe­ri­ence of The Year 2017 award.

The busi­ness has ap­pointed highly-ac­claimed chef, Jonathan Brett, to its new head of cui­sine role.

Jonathan, for­merly head chef at Dum­fries’ Easter­brook Hall, has worked with the in­dus­try’s finest in­clud­ing An­drew Fair­lie at One Devon­shire Gardens, Glas­gow.

Pro­fes­sor Thom­son said: “Jonathan’s en­ergy and en­thu­si­asm for cook­ing is a de­light to see and to savour. We’re look­ing for­ward to work­ing with him and the culi­nary team at An­nan­dale Dis­tillery on the next ex­cit­ing stage of our culi­nary jour­ney.”
