Stewart Buchanan Hosts A Whisky Appreciation Night
After seven years being appointed as Global Brand Ambassador for BenRiach¨ The GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh¨ Brown Forman brings in Stewart Buchanan to Indonesia for a special night of whisky appreciation session for the extremely enthusiastic malt enthusiasts.
Stewart Buchanan began working in the whisky industry in 1993 at Tobermory distillery on Mull. He worked in production as a ‘Stillman’, where he maintained the distillery and learned about production. In 2004, he was asked to bring BenRiach distillery back into production. From warehousing to hosting tastings, he eventually becomes Production Manager in 2006.
Stewart became Global Ambassador in 2012 for BenRiach, The GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh. This involves traveling all over the world hosting tastings, attending whisky events and working with the media, letting as many people as possible experience the three distilleries.
“This is my first time hosting a tasting session in Indonesia. Like other countries I have visited, I never did the same tasting twice. I find the malt enthusiasts here in Indonesia are eager to learn the fine details and go deep to that ‘geek’ level of knowledge in single-malt whisky.”, explains Stewart Buchanan, Brown-Forman Global Ambassador during his visit to Indonesia.
The GlenDronach, Glenglassaugh and BenRiach
The GlenDronach is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and is steeped in history. It is nestled down in a little valley and the richness of the landscape along with the Gothic feeling of the place makes it come alive. At Glenglassaugh you could stand on the adjacent beach and never experience two days the same. You never know what you’re going to get because of the tides, the winds, the blue skies, and all the elements. The endless horizon gives it a real rugged nature. Then there’s BenRiach, which sits at the top of a Speyside valley (on a ‘Ben’). BenRiach’s dynamic personality reflects the facts it sits boldly in the middle of the landscape.
“There are 155 distilleries in Scotland and I’m lucky enough to represent three of them that have extremely different characters and I don’t think you get that nowadays.”, closes Stewart Buchanan.
