A team consisting of contributing Editor Dave Broom, former Editor Marcin Miller, current Editor Dominic Roskrow and the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s Annabel Meikle targeted distilleries in Speyside to support the walk. Several other walkers have also joined in.
In addition to the walk the group have persuaded distillers in the region to contribute a small amount of whisky aged more than 20 years old for a one off Speyside Live Aid commemorative bottling to be auctioned over the summer. An equivalent bottle using Islay whisky is also planned.
The walk, designed to raise awareness of the Make Poverty History campaign, which urges politicians to call for the cancellation of third world debt, attracted the support of distilleries, celebrities and politicians.
Yes - as soon as you have details please let us know. I'm planning a trip to Speyside soon and it'd be great to see the guys on their trip - maybe sort out a collection at each of the distilleries on the route...
Look forward to hearing more...
For now I can tell you the walk will start at about 8am on Thursday from Buckie and finish at the Craigellachie (of course!)
On the Friday, local politicians have been invited to join the walk for an hour or so from the Craigellachie to Dufftown. Should be a good photo opportunity for their pre-election campaigns!
