Friends of BEGG & CO – Chiara Giovanacci, Bunnahabhain & Deanston
"As my colleagues on Islay can attest, living on Islay has its challenges at times due to the remote location, in fact Bunnahabhain was only accessible by sea until the 1960s and now the road down to the distillery can be quite hair-raising, so we're used to adapting - whether that be from stormy weather to something more unusual like this virus. What really helps do this is the great community feeling that exists on the island - it's so important to us and whilst there may be 9 distilleries on the island, there's no feeling of great competition - we like to think of them as our extended family!"
Friends of BEGG & CO - Andrew Russell Sales & Marketing Director of ARRAN Sense of Scotland
We spoke with our neighbour at Arran Aromatics about life on the Isle of Arran during this time and what they are doing to help. Andrew gave us an insight into his daily routine as we adjust to this temporary way of living.
