Score another one for Scotch: if you drink enough of it distilleries give you plots of land! Very few drinking problems result in that sort of awards system. The Laphroig Distillery sent me the deed to a square foot of land some months ago, and I decided to track it down.
In case you’re curious, I don’t own mineral rights. That’s the first thing I checked, as I intended to build an oil well. It turns out there’s an easement as well, so I can’t build any permanent structures. However it did give me an excuse to check out Islay, one of the most beautiful islands in all of creation, and to visit one of my favorite distilleries.
And, I later found out, the first person Laphroig gave a square foot of land to was Prince Charles. So we’re neighbors. Sort of.
