Dubbed the most famous fake whisky in Scotland at the time, used in a few episodes of MOTG, Lagganmore is actually a Golf course and the distillary they used was the Speyside distillary, Kingussie in the episodes featuring the Mcleish Family. Just a bit of interesting memorabilia information which got the better of my curiousity after watching the said episode.
I wonder what even happened to the prop bottles, if they were real whisky or just the proverbiale cold tea with a Lagganmore label stuck on the bottle, the white outer case which Duncan filled with barbecue ashes looks similar to a bottle of 16 year old Ancnoc Whisky I currently have, don't surpose we will ever know, interesting all the same.
it was closed to visitors when we visited it a few years ago, but we managed to get a few photos around the place. we just walked down knocked on doors there was someone in the main building but no one came out so we just took phot's why we was there. no harm done im sure.
ADVICE .a wise man doesnt need it. and afool wont take it.
Thanks for letting me know,you would have thought visitors would be encourage to boost sales, I have visited a few distilleries and always bought a bottle of their best as a reminder, had a nice visit to the distillery at Dalwinnie the staff were very helpful the day we visited, saving that bottle for when I win the lottery and reopen The Gillies Rest!
Hi Nys Yes poor Bonnie one half of the Glenbogle two who went blind for the last two years of her life sadly passed away, she had a tuma on her rear end which she had an operation to remove but two weeks later she got ill again which was probably an internal lump as she started breathing heavy and sadly passed away that night, still think about her most days, we have had a lot of dogs over the years but bonnie was so kind and gentle. Ellie also a Bearded Collie has now joined us and keeping us on our toes, she decided to take my computer mouse for a walk yesterday needless to say it is now unoperable oh the joys.
Just back from a few days away and read your post. Thank you for letting me know what happened. It's so sad when a beloved pet dies isn't it, I'm so glad you have Ellie now, not just for you both but for Clyde too. I love the way your dogs just seem to sit for their photos wherever you are- and look straight at the camera! They would definitely make great 'Extras'!
Stragely when reading your kind reply Ellie the puppy jumped up to me, perhaps she was saying that was a great idea, especially as Alistair McKenzie was on the beach filming recently they say animals have a sixth sense, when we have stopped at Ardverkie The Glenbogle two used to love it on that beach, happy memories.
They truly are in a beautiful location and seems like the whisky is done the most genuine way. Tours are available, apparently they are quite thorough/extensive so reservations are required and a fee will be due.
They have some sort black whisky I have got to try.
Thank you for the kind comments, yes we went to visit the distillery but as we went in November it had been shut to the public for a few months, looked a lovely setting though as can be said for many of the MOTG film locations, still my favourite is the Church where they buried Hector.
I remember asking this question some years ago and apparently there were some at the props sale after the final service with one of the boglies saying they had one, surpose the only chance-of getting one is keeping a lookout on ebay.
