“A rousingly optimistic affair”
“Heart-warming, slickly staged and energetically performed.”
“A show worth raising a glass to”
Having inherited a mountain of debt from her father, Mary McGregor faces a stark choice. Either close the business - and threaten the livelihood of everyone in the village - or sell her one remaining asset: the very last bottle of an ancient, fabled malt whisky . . . The Glenigma!
For Mary, closure isn’t an option. So reluctantly, she posts a notice online: The Glenigma is to be sold.
Electrified by the news, whisky fanatics from across the globe descend upon the distillery to compete in the planned auction, amongst them the two obsessive collectors who seem favourite to secure the prize: Ben Munro, a Wall Street wheeler-dealer, and Yomo Yomostushi, a Japanese industrialist.
But the soft Highland air has a strange effect on visitors. And The Genigma isn't the only attraction in this beautiful, remote location. So perhaps it’s not so surprising that when the battle for the bottle begins, things don’t turn out quite as anyone expected . . .

"When staying in Pitlochry during the early part of the war, I chanced to see a stately house with a fairly large garden, quite close to the town. I at once realised that here my dream theatre might well be established in this fashionable resort right in the heart of Scotland"… John Stewart, Founder of Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
