Octoberfest 2018

Well better late than never. Octoberfest 2018 was another success, with our highest ever turn out for our Gin tasting. We just managed to squeeze in the 36 people who attended. This year we had Zak from Strathearn Distillery come along to showcase their gins and also some of the gins they make for other companies.

We also had a great turn out at our whisky tasting with 28 attending. Gordon and MacPhail were back again but this time we had our new rep Jim Irvine hosting the evening where he showcased some of Benromach's range of whiskies. The distillery is owned by Gordon and MacPhail.

And of course we had some great bands playing. Calum MacPhail and Sean Cousins from Hò-rò opened on Friday 12th. We had regulars White Rose and Mak-A-Din playing also, but we also welcomed a new band in Emma and the Ragmen who usually only play festivals these days but wanted to come and play at the Clachaig, they will be back again next year in April.
