Jennifer Masson, marketing manager of Tomatin, said: ‘Most dad jokes are so bad they’re good – much to the embarrassment of

Based in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Tomatin Distillery is famous for its award-winning whisky range including its non-
age statement ‘Legacy’ single malt, and its 12, 14, 18 and 36-year-old whiskies.
