Ardnamurchan Trust, a Highlands charity, working with a local whiskey distillery, has initiated a uniquely Scottish campaign to encourage local children to get an education. Casks of whisky are to be bought for children age 10 to 17 in a west Highland community for them to sell when they turn 18. Once 18, they can sell the spirit back to the distillery or a bottling firm, potentially making more than £3,000, to fund further education or training. Or, as in my case, drink it.
