"In keeping with our philosophy of everything being local here at Bruichladdich we’ll be mining the ore for the new mashtun here on Islay just outside Port Charlotte. Some of the lads are a little unhappy about having to drill several kilometres into the Earth’s crust but at least we’ll have a big hole afterwards into which we can pour and then seal off most of the remaining cases of Black Art.

Once you set these rules up and establish how your vision of the future works to the audience you really need to stick to them in order to get a really good film"

"For a while we stare. It is one of those dishes that forces you into the present tense. The rain outside does not matter. We have pie."
