Musical Comedy: 'Whisky Kisses' by Martin, Smith & Boyce


Somewhere in the heart of a rolling Highland glen, one of the last family-owned distilleries is in trouble . . . Having inherited a mountain of debt from her father, Mary McGregor faces a stark choice. Either close the business - and threaten the livelihood of everyone in the village - or sell her one remaining asset: the very last bottle of an ancient, fabled, malt whisky... The Glenigma!

For Mary, closure isn’t an option. So reluctantly, she posts a notice online: The Glenigma is to be sold.

Electrified by the news, whisky fanatics from across the globe descend upon the distillery to compete in the planned auction, amongst them the two obsessive collectors who seem favourite to secure the prize: Ben Munro, a Wall Street wheeler-dealer, and Yomo Yomostushi, a Japanese industrialist.

But the soft Highland air has a strange effect on visitors. And The Glenigma isn't the only attraction in this beautiful, remote location. So perhaps it’s not so surprising that when the battle for the bottle begins, things don’t turn out quite as anyone expected . . .

A finalist in Sir Cameron Mackintosh’s ‘Highland Quest’ competition, this funny, romantic and exuberant Scottish musical gives you a taste of tartan and leaves a warm glow in your heart. Slàinte mhath!
