My first contact with whisky was end of the 50s as a child. My grandfather Mikal Gehrke (1891-1982) took a "pjolter" - a Norwegian expression for whisky and soda water. He drank Long John in high glasses and never with ice.
I started to drink whisky end of the 70s and mainly Ballentine´s. In the beginning of the 90s I got interested in malt whisky and in 1998 I made my first trip to Islay.
End of 2008 I bought the spirit safe from Glenlochy Distillery.


I have started to collect information about Glenlochy distillery and spirit safes and thanks to people all over the world I make progress almost every day. It is like making a puzzle - a small piece gives a link to more information from another source.

Pieces will always be missing but if you have information about Glenlochy or photos of spirit safes please send me an email.
