All day long, his father was very close to his thoughts, and every dram Gavin had that day, was toasted to his father’s memory.
And who knows, maybe back in heaven, his father enjoyed quite a bit of the “Angels Share” on that occasion. And so he tells me at the end of the evening: "You can take a man out of Scotland.
Gavin's very first distillery visit took place on April 1, 2011, and this date has a very special meaning for him.
Of course there was also a special dram from the "Maltmen's Casks", enjoyed in the legendary Bowmore No 1 Vaults at the end of the tour.
In 2012, the next step followed, and Gavin became Malt Ambassador for Gruppo Campari, whose portfolio included Bowmore at that time.
One of the most beautiful places Gavin Ryan Thomson can imagine are the famous warehouses of the Bowmore Distillery.
Actually, he loves them so much that he took them to his home now.

Klang für mich ein bisschen nach 'I-I-I wanna drown in gasoline', kann aber auch was anderes gewesen sein. Ich hab das hier im Refrain(so ungefähr gehört): in New York we stand...(pause) ..
Only the dripping water on the wall and floor did he leave out.
Gavin discovered his love for Bowmore many years ago, and since then he tirelessly has been posting information about his favorite distillery on Facebook and Twitter.
In months of hard work, he converted his cellar piece by piece into the famous warehouse of Bowmore.
I was lucky enough and got an invitation for his recent inaugural whisky warehouse party.
Since that day, single malt whisky has always had a strong connection to his beloved and much missed father for Gavin. But you cannot take Scotland out of a man." As I let my eyes wander through his very own Bowmore No 1 Vaults, I know what he means.
