Graham Coull grew up in Speyside spelling “whisky” without the “e” – as any proper Scot would. It didn’t help him get his first job in the Scotch Whisky industry at Glenfiddich, nor did it help him get his current job 14 years ago as the manager at Glen Moray. Next month, he’ll be leaving Elgin for Ireland’s Atlantic coast to become the manager at Dingle Distillery – and it’ll mean learning not only new styles of making whiskey…but a new way of spelling it! We’ll talk with Graham on WhiskyCast In-Depth.
In the news, a last-minute deal has headed off a strike by Diageo workers in Scotland, while the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame welcomed its Class of 2019 this week. We’ll also have details on the week’s new whiskies and a special collaboration between a Colombian Rum distiller and a Kentucky Bourbon blender.
