It was the morning after the night before and with an early start and a long day ahead of dramming between distilleries, it was vital to stock up on essentials, namely a cooked Scottish breakfast and as many cups of coffee that my bladder would allow.

As well as it being the second day of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival there was also a bit of a royal wedding shindig happing back in London, so to please all the royalists in the group we then headed to the world famous Highlander Inn to watch the much hyped nuptials of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton.

After all the royal shenanigans it was time to head to The Glenlivet Distillery. It barely seemed like a day since our last visit, oh it was. This time we we’re heading for a Distillery Masterclass with Master Distiller Alan Winchester. A man whose smile is so infectious, he single handidly makes the world feel like a better place.

Yet again it wasn’t long before we had to leave and divert back to Linn House to freshen up for the evenings proceedings, a whisky dinner at the Aberlour Distillery masterminded and put together by whisky writer and gastronomy expert Martine Nouet.

But as with all good things, the evening seemed to breeze by far too soon and by 11:30 we were heading back to Linn House for a nightcap of Royal Salute 21 year old and a few hours precious sleep before the next days early rising dramanagins.
