    I got that from a conversation with Dave Backus about 25 years ago but didn't know if it was still in practice. If Diageo decides to promote the uniqueness of the brand I think Scottish style aging houses would be an interesting angle.

    Would square very nicely with their spelling of Whisky.

    According to the Brand Ambassador we met with last night .. they are one story, stone .. barrels stacked 6 high in the warehouses. He insists they are all stone .. while the web site FAQ says metal clad. Perhaps that's metal roof.
