Congratulations to tiddlywinks icon Dr. Patrick Barrie, who not only won the National Singles Competition, but also regained the World Singles Title over the weekend,
At the beginning of the month, we launched our first ever batch from the Cameronbridge Distillery and announced our sponsorship of seven-time Tiddlywinks World Singles Champion, Dr. Patrick Barrie. As luck would have it, the good doctor was getting ready to compete in the National Singles Competition at the time, which was to be held at Downing College, Cambridge on 22-23 April 2017.
Earlier this week, we received some exciting correspondence from Dr. Barrie.
“Over the weekend, I was able to play a World Singles challenge match against Larry Kahn, the top American tiddlywinks player. (Possibly) inspired by the whisky connection, I won by a 25-17 scoreline to regain the World Singles title. So I'm now a world champion again :-)”
“Also over the weekend, I won the National Singles title again. A certain amount of luck was involved, but I'm a happy bunny.”
Dr. Patrick Barrie, the face of our Cameronbridge Single Grain, is now an eight-time Tiddlywinks World Singles Champion. It looks like our toast to Dr. Barrie’s efforts may have been instrumental in aligning the winks for this victory!
