Smart folk these judges!
Publican Jim Robertson is just returned from a fact-finding trip to Japan. Following
a visit one evening from two Japanese whisky lovers, he determined that, as a whisky
collector, he needed to see what was happening outside Scotland. He visited Yamazaki
& Chichibu distilleries and took part in WhiskyLive Tokyo.
He presented an Inverclyde plaque to whisky lover and Scotophile, Takeshi Mogi, his
host in Japan.
The Kempock Bar has won an award in the British Bar Awards as the best bar in Britain
for just sitting and supping in.
