The week in pictures

13th September, 2019 by Owen Bellwood

Nora Fraser, who was born at the Linkwood Distillery in 1939, was welcomed back to the Scotch whisky distillery to mark her 80th birthday.

Fraser celebrated her milestone birthday on 4 September with a tour of the Diageo-owned site, where she recalled memories from her life growing up next to a working distillery.

The daughter of Henry Arthur Stephen and his wife Elizabeth, Fraser said she remembered being told to stay indoors whilst casks were being rolled, and wandering through the distillery as a young child whilst the stills were being worked.
