GUINNESS WORLD RECORD HOLDER ADDS IAN MACLEOD DISTILLERS

18th May 2006

18 May 2006, Edinburgh: Bob Begley aka 'Bar Towel Bob',
the Guinness World Record holder for the largest ever collection of bar towels
was delighted to receive five Ian Macleod additions to his vast collection.

 

Ian Macleod Distillers donated
Glengoyne, Isle of Skye, London Hill Gin, King Robert Scotch and Hedges and Butler branded towels to
add to the array of colourful bar towels that Bob has been collecting for more
than 15 years.

 

'Bar Towel Bob', who is currently
the proud owner of 3,027 bar towels from 27 countries, commented: 'Ian Macleod
Distillers were by far the most generous of any organisation that I have asked
to help with my collection'.

 

'Bar Towel Bob' became the official
world record holder in January this year but has been collecting since 1990
when he was serving in the US Navy. Bob has always had an interest in
collecting things - inspired by his Grandmother who used to collect old
pennies.
