GlenDronach - The Green Welly Stop 50th Anniversary Release
2015 marks The Green Welly Stop at 50 Years of Age.
Back in 1965 this little business was started. When purchased, it included a 6 bedroom house, post office and shop, two traveling vans (with two resident mice - free of charge), petrol pumps and a coal business. In the earlier views of the business you can see the little shed to the right of the petrol pumps -this was the 'Shell Shop' where you paid for your fuel.
A lot has happened since, name change, additions, more additions, car park, motorbikes and even more!
Zip forward 49 years, on a cold night, the 28th September 2014, Six of us sat around a table in Tyndrum, and chose our initial 50th Anniversary Release.
We had already whittled it down to 6 casks. There were some standout casks, and maybe one or that we can return to later in the year. (who knows?)
So without further ado - the chosen cask:
