"It’s a great target to go for my own dram, I’m really looking forward to learning a lot more"

DONALD LIVINGSTON

I’ll be waiting to see how all the other different whiskies develop in their different casks before setting about planning my own, hopefully next year. I’ve got a wide whisky palette so anything’s possible, maybe a wee meaty number with a strong cask finish for a winter dram. I quite like a bit of hillwalking as well as music, so I’m looking forward to filling up a whisky flask for the obligatory summit tipple with my own dram in a few years’ time.

Donald moved to Skye 25 years ago to run hotels, later pursuing a full-time career in music, travelling and playing around the highlands and islands. As COVID hit he took a part-time role as a tour guide at Torabhaig which ignited his passion for whisky beyond just drinking it, and was delighted to join as a distiller when the opportunity arose a year later.
