Jimīs speech

Jim McEwan started with his fantastic speech about scotch whisky, Islay and his Bruichladdich Distillery at 18:00. Jim took a glass of whisky in his hand and said:"In my hand i do not hold only a glass of whisky. This is the blood of scotland, the soul of a tiny nation." The guest become very enthusiastic and at the end of the speech which lasted about one and a half hour all of them stand on the tables to cry out the typical scottish toast. With standing ovations Jim was sure that on this day he found new friends for Scotland, Islay and mainly Bruichladdich. He was the key to the succes of this opening ceremony and he did it very well.
