The time and changes of Scotch

This #InternationalWomensDay, we’re looking both into the past and the future of our industry. Time and change are key ingredients in the production of whisky, along with the custodianship of the casks moving through generations, from father to daughter, uncle to nephew, grandfather to son to granddaughter and everything in between. Long lines of families take more pride in their work than ever experienced in any other industry and that’s what we’re celebrating today🥃

We’re proud to work in an industry that empowers all people, of all genders, to be the best they can and adapt to the ever-changing and forward-thinking world that is Scotch whisky😊 Enjoy this wee blog telling a few tales of renewal, adaptation and confidence that helped shaped Scotch whisky into what we know it as today!

To all the strong, knowledgeable and frankly incredible women in whisky, we’re proud to work with you!❤️
