On 12th August 2017 in Glasgow Green, under the leadership of Pipe Major Stuart Liddell and Leading Drummer Steven McWhirter, the Inveraray & District Pipe Band were crowned World Pipe Band Champions for the first time in the band's short history.
Never before has a pipe band won the world title just twelve years after its formation. The band sees many international players joining the ranks of both the pipe corps and drum corps and its music is growing in demand by pipe band enthusiasts worldwide.
The year 2017 has been fantastic for the band, not only taking the World Pipe Band Championship title and the Overall Drumming title at the same event, but winning three other major championships including The British Championships, The Scottish Championships and The European Championships. All these accolades resulted in the band being crowned Champion of Champions for the second year running!
To celebrate the achievements of our local champions, we have released this limited edition bottling of our famous The Living Cask Batch 4. Join us in raising a toast to the Inveraray & District Pipe Band!
Fresh creamy vanilla aromas with a dry citrus burst, fresh pine needle and lovely fresh oakiness, it opens nicely with time to reveal fresh apple, pear and rhubarb with a sweet heather bouquet.
It has a creamy mouth-feel with a waxy texture, carrying a lot of flavour, autumn fruits with cherry, peaches and plums combining well with a dry wood spice and a little cinnamon. Adding a touch of water releases a more softer sweeter flavour, marshmallow and creamy coconut with a hint of wood smoke on the finish
A most perfect, warming beach bonfire companion.
