Old pals come to the party

Jack and Victor whisky

EVERYBODY’S favourite old guys, Jack and Victor, are making a bid to be at Christmas parties all over Scotland with the release of a festive version of their blended Scotch whisky.

The limited edition comes in a tartan carton emblazoned with the message “Merry Christmas fae us, yer auld pals”.

Ford Kiernan, who plays Jack alongside Greg Hemphill’s Victor on the popular TV series Still Game, said: “There are only 10,000 bottles available, so best be quick now.

“After that, well we launched Jack and Victor Blended Scotch Whisky in 2021 and Still Gin in 2022, so you’ll have to wait and see what 2023 has in store.”

Hemphill added: “It’s been a big year for us, with launching Still Gin in February and expanding listings with our Co-op ranging over summer.

“Throw in a road trip, meeting thousands of fans across Scotland – and having a few drams along the way – and you can’t deny it’s been an absolute belter.

“We’ll continue to grow the overall brand in a planned and careful way but there are definitely some surprises to come in 2023.”
