Glenfarclas Marketing Executive Ian McWilliam, has been made a Keeper of The Quaich in recognition of his service and contribution to the whisky industry over 26 years.
Ian joined J&G Grant as Assistant Head Warehouseman in 1991 and after 14 years in production, including the position of Assistant Manager, he moved to the sales & marketing team where he oversees distribution for 33 countries.
His comprehensive knowledge and experience of the traditional skills used to produce Glenfarclas is invaluable; many have enjoyed his in-depth tour or presentations worldwide where he explains all there is to know about the production of Glenfarclas single malt scotch whisky. Living on site and continuing to undertake “on-call” production duties has helped Ian keep up-to-date with the latest changes and improvements that have been made since he left his production post in 2004.
Whether on site at Glenfarclas or across the world, he continues to host events on behalf of J&G Grant, entertaining and educating whisky enthusiasts in his impeccable and professional manner.
Congratulations Ian, thoroughly deserved!
