Mark Reynier Interview on BBC 4

As briefly mentioned yesterday Mark Reynier of Bruichladdich distillery on Islay was on Fi Glover's Saturday Live this morning. To listen to Mark talking about how he got into whisky, Bruichladdich, Islay and running a business on a remote Hebridean island again go to the Saturday Live 02/Feb/2008 page and click on the ‘Listen to this programme in full’ link, Mark's part begins at approx 35 min into the programme.

Here's my attempt at a quick & dirty as well as completely unauthorised transcript while listening to it again:

Very good interview I think, Fi seemed to be well prepared and Mark in good form despite a rough flight. Nothing really new about how he bought the distillery, but I quite like how it is told again. Some Londoners might disagree, but I think a lot of commuters would love to say this: ‘And I have the most beautiful commute in the world, nine miles along the Atlantic ocean every morning with my son, taking him to school, and you think, this certainly beats the hell out of taking the 7:45 from Haywards Heath to Victoria.’
