Known as ‘The Nose’, Richard began his career in whisky in 1966 as a production assistant at a Glasgow blender. In 1970 he joined Whyte & Mackay and five years later, he was promoted to master distiller at the impressive age of 26. He still holds this position today and when not in his Glasgow laboratory, spends his time travelling around the world to teach people about whisky.
We are privileged that Richard will be hosting this special masterclass to mark this milestone in his career. This is sure to be a truly unforgettable experience.
