David started work at Bowmore on 4 June 1990 – he was 16, arriving fresh out of school to work in the warehouses. Over the years David has worked in most parts of the distillery, from the malt barns and mash house, to becoming head distiller in 2006. In 2012 he was appointed distillery manager, the position he holds today.
If you visit the distillery you might bump into David helping out with distillery tours, which he still finds time for. He, like us at The Whisky Show, is a big fan of old Bowmore, with tropical fruit bombs from the 1950s and 1960s being special favourites.
