Time to say “Farewell”

St.Andrews Harbor

Time to say Farewell to our Volkswagen Starfish T4 /1.

The T4 and I had many great adventures and together we’ve grown experience in the taxi game.
We had customers making love in the back row, the very first weekend of us coming out to St.Andrews.
Little did we know that this was only the start to many great stories and adventures.
We’ve seen heartache, blood and tears.
We have taken care of people beyond the service which is required for a taxi…
Some looked down on her and others have respected her for her character.
But I believe she was distinctive from other taxis in town.

We’ve made good friends together…!
We  had requests for driving around all night just because of her tasty tunes and the Disco lights.

But now… she’s on her last shift… she’s tired and wants to slow-pace her career as a retired Camper-van. Dodging the countryside relieved of the daily pressure from her current owner.

Thank you my dear friend… You have been a great ride… You’ve done your very very best.
The T4 rolled over 280.000 MILES or 450.000KM or 11times across the planet.

I will never forget all the mischief we got in to… Fare-well my loyal friend.

It will be the nearest distillery to the St.Andrews area interesting for tourists with a real interest in the distilling, brewing and fermenting of alcohol also Kings barns is also famed for its golf course.

Upon completion visitors will walk from the car park past the original well which acted as the main water supply to the farm, into the octagonal shaped distillery entrance which used to be a horse gang mill. Then visitors have the option to enjoy the visitors centre and continue on the tour of the distillery, or simply visit the onsite shop and cafe.

The distillery and visitors centre boasts an interpretation space where guests can learn about the history of the area and malt whisky in Scotland from a tour guide, as well as being shown firsthand the distilling process. The final stop on the distillery tour is to one of the tasting rooms on the upper floor.

The still house, which is currently under construction, will hold the equipment to mill and mash the malt. It will also hold wash back vessels where the fermentation of the malt takes place and the two stills used for distillation. There sulting new make spirit has to mature for at least three year in oak casks before it can be called single malt Scotch Whisky. Warehousing will take place in another location.

When the center opens it will provide over 20 jobs to local people over full time, part time and seasonal contracts.

“In the long term the center will be a welcome boost to the local economy, bringing more tourism and employment opportunities to the area as well as growing the existing Wemyss Vintage Malt brand.”

Velvet Fig is a new limited edition blended malt matured wholly in ex Oloroso sherry casks, evoking rich autumn and winter fruits and spices.
Internationally acclaimed musician James Yorkston who is from the local area, of Kingsbarns, celebrated the opening by performing an intimate set including a song he penned especially for the occasion.
