Jamie announces his new whisky

Outlander fans will soon have something new to toast. Actor Sam Heughan, who stars as Jamie Fraser in the popular time-travel drama, is launching a whisky brand, which appears to be called ” The Sassenach.”

Heughan posted a logo on his Instagram account today, which reads “The Sassenach Unique Spirits,” and features the national animal of Scotland, a unicorn.

The caption elaborates: “Unique. @sassenachspirits Distilling now in Scotland… Drop by drop.”

In his stories, he also added “Can’t wait for you to try this…!”

The whisky is part of Heughan’s new business, Great Glen Company, and in an interview with The Scotch Malt Whisky Society published earlier this year, he spoke of his dream to create his own spirit.

“I set up the Great Glen Company to produce products that I believe in, using my heritage and passion as inspiration,” he said. “We are currently working on my brand of whisky with our first announcement soon. First stop is obviously the lifelong dream of having my own dram.”

The project has been in the works for several months, with Heughan sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the process on social media.

Back in May, for example, he teased the first photoshoot for the brand on social media.

And in June, he posted a photo of several whiskies on his Instagram account, writing, “When setting out on an adventure, the journey always comes to an end. The perfect Whisky blend is almost there…!”

Edinburgh and Glasgow in top ten happiest places in Britain

The numbers are in , the polls are closed and now we can exclusively reveal that both Edinburgh and Glasgow are in top ten happiest places in Britain.
Here are the numbers for the happiest places to live and work in the UK

Brighton – 86.4%

Swansea – 75%

Glasgow – 70.6%

York – 66.7%

Lincoln – 63.2%

Belfast – 62.5%

Edinburgh – 62.5%

Birmingham – 61.3%

London – 61%

Manchester – 60%

Commenting on the findings, Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library, says: “At a time where there’s constant negativity in the press, it’s fantastic to see that the majority of Brits still feel happy on a daily basis.

“The findings got me thinking about an article I read once which really resonated with me: it said that success isn’t the key to happiness, it’s happiness that’s the key to success. I agree that feeling good in ourselves makes it easier to achieve our goals, whether that’s in our personal or professional lives.”

On the other hand, the cities where the percentage of respondents who said they were happy was below the national average, included Sheffield (57.7%), Bournemouth (57.1%), Oxford (55.6%), Bristol (55.6%), Newcastle (53.5%), Southampton (51.4%), Cambridge (47.5%), Liverpool (47.1%), Cardiff (44.8%), Bristol (44.4%) and Nottingham (40%).

Biggins concludes: “No-one can be happy all the time, but being able to make the most of the good times and cope effectively when life does get tough is crucial. If you are struggling, it’s important to not only seek professional help or talk to your loved ones, but also to really consider what’s making you unhappy. Make a list and try to think of solutions: maybe it’s time to find a new job, start a new hobby, or even take some time out to think about your goals.”

Edinburgh is a great city with lots to do for people who live there and visitors . Jamie Fraser’s ancestral home , Lallybroch , is not far from Edinburgh and can be visited on the Jamie Fraser Outlander tours.
