We are pleased to announce a very special event where we have not 1, but 2 people from their respective distilleries in Los Angeles to talk about their whisky. Ronan Currie is the Sales Director and assists with choosing the casks for GlenAllachie — he is a native of Glasgow and it shows in his presenting. Catherine MacMillan is the Brand Manager for Kilchoman Distillery — was born and raised at Ardbeg Farm next to the iconic distillery on the Isle of Islay.
