I recently read in the Whisky Magazine that only 12 distilleries are still using worm tubs to condense the spirit off the still.Would you know which ones still are as I would interested in finding out.
And the old joke (most of you can skip this, and I apologize in advance for even repeating it): A football coach (or army drill sergeant) attempts to teach his charges a lesson by putting a worm in a glass of water, and another one in a glass of whisky. The one in the water wriggles around; the one in the whisky immediately dies. "What have you learned from this?" he asks. One of the lads answers, "If you drink whisky, you won't get worms."
Worms are wriggly segmented invertebrates that dig through the soil and crawl on the sidewalk on rainy days. Adders are snakes. I've never heard of anyone being bitten by a worm!
Ah, thanks for the clarification! As I said worms/adders/snakes can mean the same in norwegian.
Anyway, I gave in to the pressure of not buying whisky this month, partly because of lack of will and partly because the plumbing bill wasn't as high as I feared it might be! So I bought a Dalwhinnie 15 YO. The reason for mentioning this is because on the box it says:Increasingly rare wooden worm-tubs.
I'll try to be about on your stop over in F'ton Mr. Tattieheid...I'll treat ya tae a dram..with a nosing glass to boot....Mortlach's worm tubs seemed larger than most but I cannot remember Dalwhinnie's so you might just be right on the largest ones. Worm tubs might be a step back in time but, I like them.I liked Inver House Distilleries. Like stepping back in time.
