In whisky news, Deeside Distillery welcomed Olympic snowboarder Ben Kilner to fill his cask of founders’ release future single malt whisky. The first cask of 88 available is owned by the Banchory athlete who now runs The Unit Gym and Fitness in the Deeside town.

Ben competed in two Winter Games – Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014 where he represented Britain in the Men’s Halfpipe.

Ben said: “It is incredibly exciting to own my first cask of future whisky from a local distillery. I have watched the Deeside Distillery team develop their products over the years so to be able to own one of the first casks produced is a huge privilege. I now just have a few years to wait until I can bottle it up in the future!”
