PERTH, Scotland - July 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Designed by celebrity sporran-maker Marcus Eagleton, and fashioned out of the official Commonwealth Games tartan supplied by House of Edgar, the collar is Peat’s first official collar having only arrived at the Distillery a few weeks earlier.

Peat, the 12 week old kitten, posed for the cameras while seeking approval of his new look from his predecessor Towser, the world record holding Greatest Mouser. In passing, he also had a good sniff of the deluxe, single malt cask strength Glenturret whisky, bottled in 1986 and released specially for Glasgow 2014 by The Famous Grouse, Official Whisky Provider to the Games.
