Bha Seòras Grannd (1923-2002) na cheann-suidhe air Taigh-Staile Gleann Farghlais ri taobh Abhainn Spè fad lethcheud bliadhna 's a dhà. Cheannaich a shinnsear, Iain Grannd, an taigh-staile ann an 1865, agus tha e air a bhith aig an teaghlach Grannd on uair sin. 'S e Iain L S Grannd, mac Sheòrais, an ceann-suidhe aige an-dràsta. Anns an earrainn chlaistinnich seo, a chaidh a chlàradh o thùs ann an 1983 do 'Mhoray Firth People', tha Seòras a' bruidhinn mu dheidhinn mar a thòisicheadh air uisge-beatha a mheasgachadh.

Interviewer: The other thing you mentioned was blending. Did that suddenly come up on the market, do you know, George, or did somebody hit upon this as a solitary finding?

I - it's like all innovations or things that happen like this. Presumably several publicans had started doing it at the same time - buying whisky from different distillers - and then presumably buying grain whisky and mixing the two together and eventually producing a blend. Who started, I wouldn't know.

Interviewer: Have you any notion what difference that made to the whisky?

The blending?

Interviewer: Yes.

Well, of course, there was a famous case in 19-, oh, I think about 1906, which led to a Royal Commission, which was known as the 'What is Whisky?' Commission, where there was a case taken in London, against a publican, who was accused of selling spirit, calling it Scotch whisky and it wasn't, merely because he had blended grain whisky with malt whisky. The result of all that was that grain whisky was recognised as another form of Scotch whisky, and that the blended grain whisky and malt whisky together could be called Scotch whisky as it is today under our existing law
