Top 10 drinks tips for living to 1008th May, 2013 by Andy Young
When Janet Sheed Roberts died in April 2012 aged 110, she was Scotland’s oldest lady.
Although she didn’t pick out a particular drink as the secret to her long life, it fair to say that she had whisky in her blood. Janet was the grand-daughter of William Grant and still lived close to the Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown.
She was such a special member of the family that in 2011, 11 bottles of 55-year-old Glenfiddich, dubbed the “Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve” were released to celebrate her 110th birthday. Janet was born in 1901 in Moray and was the only woman in her class when she studied at Glasgow and Edinburgh universities.
