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 ri Sam Marshall mu uisge-beatha dèante ann an tìrean cèin.

Interviewer: How alike is the foreign made imitation to Scotch whisky? Does is bear any resemblance at all?

Oh yes. Oh yes. But depending how much Scotch malt they put into it. If they load it up with Scotch malt, of course, there's a very striking resemblance to Scotch. You have to remember that a lot of Scotch goes out of Scotland, especially into the continental market, where there's a very low percentage of malt whisky in the blend and a large percentage of grain whisky. So, if you take an admixture, with a large percentage of malt, Scotch malt, in it, and a low percentage of a neutral spirit made in the country that admix it, it compares very favourable to some of these Scotches. But it's still not the genuine article, of course. One of the - I should say, one of the reasons for this you've got to lay at the door of the politicians because they create the climate to bring this about by taxation; by taxing an imported product at a higher rate than a locally distilled one. For instance, the Scotch shipped out of Scotland will be charged at say, rate of duty 'A' but if you ship malt whisky out in bulk and admix with a local spirit, the local spirit will be charged a lower rate of duty. So you're producing an admixture which can undersell the genuine Scotch just because of the government's distortion of duties
