John MacLellan Tribute Fund

Islay News in stencil

Last weekend John MacLellan sadly passed away, known to many from his work at Bunnahabhain and Kilchoman distilleries during a long career in the whisky industry on Islay. I've written about my memories of John here, other thoughts and memories are at Spirits Business, WhiskyCast and In John's memory a tribute fund has been set up:

John's wife Lindy and their children Rosie and Sandy have set up a John MacLellan Tribute Fund at the Beatson Cancer Charity to help raising funds for Beatson who helped to care for John. When they set up the fund they said they were hoping to raise £5,000 for Beatson, as of writing this the total was already standing at £5,859. May be £10,000 can be reached after all, doubling the £5,000? If you knew John and would still like to donate why not head over now.

I understand the funeral service took place at Kilchoman today, I'm going to pour a wee dram of Kilchoman Islay single malt whisky (in a Bunnahabhain glass) in memory of John tonight.

Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
