WDF: Hi Gordon. Thanks very much for your time today. For those who don't know you ... Could you please tell us a bit more about yourself: Where do you come from – career background etc. And how did you end up working for Ian Macleod Distillers?
Gordon: Well I actually graduated as an engineer, due to not knowing my vocation in life. I worked for a few years being an engineer which I didn’t enjoy very much and then via a couple of other roles I started working for Whisky Magazine. Having been a fan of whisky, it was great to work for a magazine which gives you such an insight into the industry and the ability to meet such great people. I joined Morrison Bowmore Distillers in 2011 heading up their brands in Europe and laterally in Asia during 2014 when I lived in Taiwan. After the creation of Beam Suntory in 2014, I worked in travel retail across all of the unique products which the company had within this sector. In 2017 I left to join Ian Macleod Distillers and head up internationally their superb Whisky portfolio.
