Special dram created to commemorate Celtic rockers’ farewell tour

Retiring Celtic rockers Runrig have teamed up with a north-east firm to produce a special dram to toast their final tour.

Earlier this year it was announced the Scottish band would play a series of farewell concerts in 2018, with a grand finale in Stirling in August.

Huntly-based Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky, which has produced special bottles for previous tours, was commissioned to provide the “One for the Road” single malt.

Runrig member Calum MacDonald said: “Producing a special whisky has proved very popular with our fans. Ever since we have announced our final tour and final concert, there has been a lot of interest in the whisky we would produce to mark the occasion.

“We were delighted to pick something that, like ourselves, had a long and interesting history. So, this final dram, had to be a Highland single malt. With music and whisky being Scotland’s greatest exports, they are the perfect partners to commemorate and celebrate such a journey.”

Duncan Taylor chief executive Moji Shand said: “When Runrig announced they were pulling down the curtain on their 45 years in music, it was only apt that we would collaborate with them again on a ‘one for the road’ whisky.

“It’s been an honour to work with them and we wish the band and their tour all the best.”
