About Cochrane Cartwright

The owners of Glengoyne, Ian MacLeod Distillers, in 2011 dedicated a 15 year old single Highland Malt, Glengoyne Gold - to Cochrane Cartwright's "pursuit of perfection in the golden spirit produced under his watch".

"It is believed that Cochran continues to watch over the distillery and many evening dinner guests have reported seeing his ghost, although usually after some product sampling! So often has Cochran been spotted, however, that it is now tradition for guests to finish their evening with a toast to the spirit of Glengoyne, now embodied in this golden malt."
