Distell has announced the appointment of Angus Upton as global brand ambassador for its award-winning single malts portfolio.
An accomplished whisky connoisseur, Angus joins the leading drinks producer from The Scottish Malt Whisky Society where he specialised in offering personalised tastings for high-value clients. He has an impressive track record for his expert whisky nose, being one of the youngest members of The Scottish Malt Whisky Society Tasting Panel, as well as working in the Royal Lochnagar Distillery and providing consultant and tasting services to independent bottlers.
In his new role, Angus will represent Distell globally for its award-winning single malts portfolio, which includes Bunnahabhain, Deanston, Ledaig and Tobermory.
Angus comments: “Joining such an established whisky producer has been a long-term ambition of mine and I’m honoured to join the team. From the exquisite peated Ledaig to the honeyed richness of Deanston, each of the malts are unique and I’m really looking forward to working with them and sharing my love of quality single malts with consumers the world over.”
