More Memories of William Birnie
Having made contact with Peter, he kindly provided some further memories of his time visiting his grandfather and the distillery office...
'Yes memories for sure, my sister and I were quite little as we enjoyed summer and winter vacations in Inverness, and playing most mornings the Glen Mohr office, the secretary's loved it as they put aside their work care for us. I remember his office filled with unfortunately hunting collections!! large snakeskin along the wall, Tiger mat below his desk other things hung!! the smell of Tabaco from his pipes.'
We already knew that William was quite a character and it seems that his office reflected that character. Imagine a distillery today with such features? Now, does anyone in Inverness have a snakeskin trophy or a tiger mat?
My thanks to Peter for reliving the past and hopefully more recollections to come.
