But The Distilleries Went On
- Hardback - Angels' Share
Morrison Bowmore Distillers (MBD) started life in 1951 as an independent player in an industry largely dominated by the dinosaur that was The Distillers Company. Its founder was Stanley P. Morrison who, with partner James Howat, astutely built the company into one of Scotch Whiskey's major players. Then, with the assistance of Stanley's sons Brian and Tim they eventually created a distillery portfolio of Bowmore, Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch. A considerable trade in bulk whiskey was built up but as this market declined and interest in singly malt grew, the firm developed its branded business. This volume traces the early beginnings of MBD and charts the development of the company over six decades as it grew and prospered.

Julie Clarke was born a boy in the 50s in central Scotland.
