On Monday evening at the annual Keepers of the Quaich event at Blair Castle, our Group Operations Director, Bill White, was recognised as a Master of the Quaich.
Our Group Operations Director The Keepers of the Quaich is an international society which was established by the Scotch Whisky industry to celebrate the outstanding commitment of those involved in the production, promotion, and protection of the world’s finest distilled spirit.
Only a limited number of people are inducted as a Keeper each year to honour those who have made an exceptional contribution in supporting Scotch Whisky.
The 62nd private ceremony and banquet took place on Monday evening, at Blair Castle in Blair Atholl which celebrated 42 new members of the Keepers of the Quaich being inducted into the international society.
A select few have subsequently been distinguished as Master of the Quaich having served for a further ten years and been recognised by their peers for their ongoing support of the aims of the Society.
Our very own Group Operations Director, Bill White was one of these select few. Bill has been with us at Loch Lomond Group as Operations Director since 2014, when the company was conceived, but has been working within the whisky industry for 28 years and has been widely recognised by the global members of the Keepers of the Quaich. Collectively, the Society represents many thousands of years of experience and knowledge.
Operations Director, Bill White said: “I am truly thrilled to be recognised as one of the six recently appointed, Masters of the Quaich. I have been in the industry for 28 years, so it really has been such an honour to have my experience recognised and celebrated by such a prestigious panel of experts. I am looking forward to immersing myself into the society and supporting the Scotch Whisky and wider industry further.’’
