Whisky Galore

Whisky Galore Release Date: May 12, 2017

Whisky Galore is the story of the inhabitants of the isolated Scottish island of Todday, in the Outer Hebrides, where gloom sets in as their wartime rationing of whisky runs out. When cargo ship the SS Cabinet Minister runs aground the shrewd islanders run rings around the buffoonish English Home Guard commander Captain Waggett and conspire to hide away cases of the precious amber nectar.

The original Whisky Galore was shot in Barra during a wet summer in 1948 and released in June 1949. Based on the book by Compton McKenzie it was an instant success, earning a Best Picture Nomination at the 1950 BAFTAs.
