The weather was glorious and sunny, with cloudless blue skies, so we did our whisky tasting session on the balcony of the new visitor centre, which I hear is a big improvement on the old one. The distillery itself has gotten a refresh thanks to new owners Distel, adopting the white painted-walls and bold black lettering as the Kildalton distilleries, and has a glorious view of the Sound of Islay and Paps of Jura across the bay. David in the distillery shop is a knowledgable chap and can sort you out for any of their very wide range of small batch, hand-filled, distillery exclusive bottlings, both peated and unpeated, with a broad range of creative cask finishes, six of which we got to sample during our tasting.

Didn't know anything about the whisky, but I wanted to try it. I did the warehouse no. 9 tasting, highly recommend. It was a great experience and the staff were friendly and personable. Great location, great whisky!

This was the best visit . David’s presentation and knowledge, ease of delivery, obvious passion for the topic and generosity of spirit made it a tasting to remember and treasure. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. The rest of the team were friendly and had time. I took the miniature and glass to a quiet spot in Islay later and toasted my dad who passed away very recently. Thankyou.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
