Rest in peace John Sutherland.

January 25, 2007

Last Saturday John Sutherland, Distillery Manager of Glenrothes died after beeing taken into hospital earlier in the week.

These are the words of Luke Tegner, Glenrothes brand director.

“It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that John Sutherland,
the Distillery Manager at Glenrothes, died at the weekend. John was
taken into hospital last week, initially to Elgin then to Aberdeen and
Edinburgh. He went home at the end of the week, apparently never really
felt well, and died at home on Saturday morning.

John was so much more than the distillery manager. First and foremost a
true friend, John was a great character – larger than life, with a
fantastic and wicked sense of humour. He was an active and devoted
ambassador for The Glenrothes, fully involved both at the heart of its
production and as an evangelist on a global level.

I’m sure you will be as shocked and devastated as we are, as we will
miss him immeasurably. It goes without saying that our thoughts are with
John’s family.”

WhiskyGrotto sends our condolences to John’s family and friends.
