Edinburgh Champagne Morning

December 14, 2007

edinburgh coffee morning - ewan mcintosh

Last week only four turned up. This week, ten turned up for probably the last Edinburgh Coffee Morning of 2007. What better way to start the morning than with a complimentary slice of Panettone and a glass of Prosecco sparkling wine from the owners of the Centotre.

If that wasn’t enough, Ewan came along bearing gifts. A number of signed Stormhoek posters from Hugh MacLeod. Mine is already pinned up in the Terinea office, thank you Ewan and Hugh.


The main highlight was Ewan demonstrating Seemic which you can see in action below. Although in true Ewan fashion, he started filming with no prior warning, so you end up sounding stupid and say something like “IT”!


Here is another short video of us drinking at 8:55 taken with my new Samsung F700.

Whisky company embracing social media

October 22, 2007

Last Thursday I was invited along to a whisky tasting evening hosted by Spencefield Spirit and Mike of Digital Agency. Spencefield Spirit are a small company (Alex and Jane) that sell Sheep Dip and Pigs Nose whisky.

Without the deep pockets of larger competitors, Alex and Jane, along with some help from Digital Agency have been using digital and social media to expose their brands and create a customer experience. For example their whisky featured in the Burning Man festival, they blogged about it and uploaded the photo’s to flickr. Jane mentioned on the companies Facebook group, Sheep Dip Fold about her Christmas Cake recipe, after a number of requests Jane uploaded the recipe to the blog and along with photo’s on flickr.

Before you ask, here are the reasons for the names of their whiskies:-

Sheep Dip

The name came about because British farmers have long referred to whisky as Sheep Dip. There was a time when farmers distilled their own “home-made” whisky and in order to avoid paying taxes to the revenue man hid the whisky in barrels marked “Sheep Dip”. Farmers’ merchants continued this tradition by entering cases of whisky as “Sheep dip” on farmers’ bills and so “pulling the wool” over the farmers wives eyes.

Pigs Nose

The blend contains a high percentage (40%) of malt whiskies, principally from Speyside imbuing the product with their characteristic softness; the name comes from the farming expression “soft as a pig’s nose”

Whisky and Passion

Okay Spencerfield are not going to take on the big boy’s over night, but its important to show the company (Alex and Jane) have a real passion for their brands, that can’t be manufactured or purchased off the shelf (I’ll have 10 blog posts about my business please!). Its probably more important for niche brands such as theirs to show this passion.

So if your a whisky fan, keep an eye out for Sheep Dip or Pig Nose in your local or alternatively purchase some online.
