Meet the People of Islay

A Lot of videos popped up today on the youtube channel of Laphroaig Distillery. Too many to post them all here of course so I selected a few for you.

The first one is a video introducing Vicky Stevens: "Vicky is the Visitor Centre Manager of Laphroaig so any of you who have visited Laphroaig Distillery will have met her and seen her cheery smile. Today Laphroaig have over 15,000 people a year who make the pilgrimage to Islay so it is a huge task in itself. But Vicky is also in charge of the Laphroaig shop. Vicky has been responsible for introducing a range of locally produced items including the Laphroaig scented soaps that are so popular." See the video below:

The second video: "Vicky introduces Ailsa Hayes. She was a chemist who came to Islay 7 years ago as it was the perfect place to raise a family; she soon found a niche and used her chemistry skills to start up a soap business, Spirited Soaps." Enjoy!

I have added the other videos to the Playlist "People of Islay"

The Maggie

Buy The Maggie from Amazon The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. It is however a 'gem' in the true sense of the word. The film has everything, humour, tragedy, pathos, romance. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time!
