Before we start..tartan and Plaid are not the same!! 🙂 The criss cross patterned fabric known worldwide as ‘Plaid’ is only transforms into ‘Tartan’ when the plaid patterned fabric is associated to a particular name, a specific clan, family, or other community. Without this association the plaid is nothing more than a pretty patterned fabric, maybe used as a shawl or bedcover. Simply put…’No alliance, means, it’s No tartan!!’

Introducion and History
Malt whisky, Scotch or as it’s more poetically know as ‘The Water of Life’ is one of Scotland’s proudest, pungent and popular crafted products. Beginning in the early 15th century, the distillation of Whisky, soon sparked interest from the government through tax collection. Robert Burns, not only was the famous Scottish Bard, but who was also a tax collectors of his day. wrote “Scotch Drink – an ode to whisky and the nature of happiness – of community, cooperation, warmth and a friendly welcome.” Capturing the true spirit of Scotland in his whiskey inspired words. The characteristics of every growing Scottish Malt Whisky family, with their deep, smoky, peaty aromas to their more delicate floral and fruit overtones are as captivating and varied as the Scot’s people who produce them.
