I guess if you are going to die at work, there could be worse ways. I wonder if there will be a limited edition bottling – Kinda like Nelson’s Blood.
Tributes have been paid to team leader Brian Ettles, 46, who died at the plant in Moray on Saturday.
It is understood that he was found dead in a 16ft distillery vat filled with water and yeast. Police would not comment on where Mr Ettles' body was discovered.
The Glenfiddich Distillery was shut on Monday and Tuesday as a mark of respect.
Bill White, William Grant & Sons' group operations director, said: "Brian, who had loyally served the company for 22 years, having joined in 1989, was a highly-valued team leader for the last six years and, before that, a popular team member in the Dufftown process team.
"Our heartfelt thoughts, condolences and sympathy go to Brian's family, friends and colleagues, and to those who worked so closely with him during his 22 years' service."
A Grampian Police spokeswoman said the death was not being treated as suspicious.
