We are saddened to announce the death of our good friend and Cornwall
Chapter Convenor-Emeritus Don MacDiarmid following a valiant battle with
cancer. Don, 76, was an acknowledged authority on Single Malt Scotch
and had one of the finest collections in Canada.
He led the Cornwall Chapter out of a former malt whisky society and into
The Companions of The Quaich and later encouraged other chapters to
follow his lead.
Don and his wife, Janie, took part in one of our earliest Whisky Tours of
Scotland and appeared in the one-hour documentary, The Whisky Trail, on
the CTV network. They also joined Companions from all over Ontario on
an annual trip to the Fredericton Whisky Festival on several occasions.
Don was a gem of a gentleman and he will be sadly missed by all who
knew him. Our sincerest condolences go out to Janie and all the family on
