Some welcome winter warmth was on offer for guests in the Hailwood centre at the TT grandstand in Douglas on Friday night.

The occasion was a whisky tasting session run by online whisky commentator Ralfy Mitchell who is also the man behind the ralfy.com whisky reviews and Youtube presentations.

‘It was a cold, damp winter’s night last Friday,’ Mr Mitchell said.

‘But the Hailwood centre was a haven of warmth and good company as whisky fans and supporters of the Joey Dunlop Foundation enjoyed a buffet and a series of quality malt whiskies.’

Among the guests at the tasting were double land speed record holder Richard Barks from Laxey and he was joined at the event by TT star and Ramsey resident Conor Cummins- both able to add their seal of approval to the special Joey Dunlop limited edition malt whisky currently on sale in Shoprite for £35 a bottle.

The event raised £845 from ticket sales and an auction. All proceeds from whisky sales and from the whisky tasting evening go to support the foundatiom, which provides holiday accommodation for the disabled.
