Journal day has conveniently landed on a very special day indeed. Today we celebrate our very own Co-Owner & Managing Director’s Birthday. As a celebration, this week’s journal is dedicated to the one and only Michael Morrison!
Firstly, from all of your team at the Isle of Barra Distillers, we would like to wish you a very Happy Birthday and many happy returns!
We should add that this isn’t any old Birthday for Michael, this is a special milestone Birthday…
Michael, when you’re reading this, please don’t worry. We won’t be disclosing your age to the public within this journal…at the beginning. As for the end, we can’t make any guarantees.
Now what kind of team would we be, if we didn’t grab this opportunity to display our appreciation for your achievements in life and for being a truly fantastic Boss. It would also be criminal if we didn’t take advantage of displaying these incredible throwback photographs of your life so far!
Where to start? Well, as a successful business owner, husband and father of two beautiful children we really do ask ourselves “when does Michael come up for air?”. We truly admire Michael’s ability to bring his A-Game and banter to the distillery each and every day of life. You’ve heard it from us first, there is literally never a dull moment when Michael is around.
Forever working and shifting into different roles as Managing Director and Head Distiller on a daily basis, he really is an incredible guy.
From establishing the Isle of Barra Distillers and launching in August 2017 with Co-Owner and wife Katie, the business has grown from strength to strength as a result of the hard work, dedication and passionate input from this partnership.
We just hope all the long hours and lack of holidays haven’t aged you like an old malt.
