Graeme Macaloney gave up a secure career in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue his dream of making whisky, and the Scottish expat is getting closer to realizing his dream. He’s hoping to begin construction on the Victoria Caledonian Distillery in Victoria, British Columbia soon, and has already brought Dr. Jim Swan and former Diageo distillery manager Mike Nicolson as consultants. Graeme explains why he and his family mortgaged their future (and their house) on his dream on this week’s WhiskyCast In-Depth.

In the second of our two episodes from this weekend’s Victoria Whisky Festival, we’ll catch up on more of the week’s news – including more details on the $50,000 bottle of The Balvenie 50 stolen in a Montreal robbery Thursday and a Scottish newspaper report that several distilleries are in hot water with environmental protection officials over using too much water. We’ll get the latest on new whiskies from Springbank, the revival of a historic blended Scotch brand, and Corby’s Dr. Don Livermore clears up more misconceptions about Canadian Whisky.
