WHO is buying it?

A group of private investors ... not really encouraging. I would hate to see the SMWS be solely driven by short-term profit so the investors can turn around and re-sell at a profit.

Don't get me right, I am not against profit, but if it means the SMWS is going to start bottling at 40% with mixed NAS batches all named in Gaelic, then that is where I draw the line between honest profit and parasitic behaviour.

I'll be at the SMWS in a couple of weeks; I'll try to get a feeling for the positiveness with which the news is being received.

No offence taken @Jules, I can appreciate a man of principle. I'll blame it on my phone's auto-correct.

I've only had one run-in with the smws. At a whisky expo. Seemed like people interested more in whisky than in making money..
