Islay, the Queen of the Hebrides and their Southern-most island, is the place where they make whisky. And here is the Laphroaig Distillery, run by a woman, Mrs Wishart Campbell. She started here as a secretary in 1933, and now is the Managing Director. Whisky may no longer be only a man's drink, but you'd expect its production to be an entirely male preserve. Well, Mrs Campbell proves you wrong!
