    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Duncan touched many people around the world, on Islay, and generations of us at the distillery. He was Bruichladdich's Stillman - Brewer - Engineer - General Distillery Manager, over a period of more than 40 years. A mentor to many, always the source of a good story, a true Ileach with huge hands and a huge heart, his determination and resourcefulness were the foundations of everything we've built since. He also gave 47 years to the coastguard on Islay, and had a passion for vintage engines wherever they could be found. He will always be missed. Our thoughts are with his family.

    Tributes are pouring in. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made here to Islay's Gortanvogie, where he was so well looked after in his last days (Residents Fund).

        He was a good man, he loved his wife and family more than most know. I had the proud opportunity to drive his white truck. A memory that most do not have the moment in their lives. Travel safe.

        Duncan always made me feel welcome to Islay and Bruichladdich, and I feel lucky to have so many memories from all my visits over the years. He will be sadly missed. My thoughts are with his family.
