The story of MacNair's Lum Reek 12 years
"Lang may yer lum reek" (Gael. "long may your chimney smoke") - the Scottish one Idiom is a greeting for a long life.
The origin of this peated blended malt whiskey can be found b ei Harvey MacNair, On an autumn evening after a day's fishing at the loch in the 1860s, master distiller Harvey MacNair treated himself to a dram of whiskey at the local pub, The Old Stone Bothy, near the GlenAllachie distillery.
The chimney of the Haus didn't draw properly and so the room filled with smoke, which would have been a reason for anyone else to leave the house, was just right for Harvey MacNair - and especially for his whiskey - the whiskey tasted much better now !
The current GlenAllachie Master Distiller, Billy Walker, has now re-created this very heavily peated whiskey - albeit with a little more caution and science than Harvey MacNair over a hundred years earlier.
