Tartan Army horror at 1966 World Cup whisky

The Sunday Times, Scotland

Marc Horne

IT MAY have happened 40 years ago, but England’s World Cup win against West Germany at Wembley remains a painful scar on the Scottish psyche.
Now a Highland distillery has committed what some will regard as the ultimate act of betrayal — dedicating a whisky to England’s greatest sporting triumph.
The Tullibardine distillery in Blackford, Perthshire, is to launch a 1966 vintage single malt. It aims to use the occasion to encourage Scots to support England at this summer’s World Cup in Germany.
Almost 400 bottles of the 1966 World Cup Vintage, complete with a label eulogising England’s triumph, will go on sale next month.
