In addition to attending events and working with trade customers, Stephen will host high-net worth consumers to help build their knowledge and support their exploration of the Gordon & MacPhail whisky portfolio.

Commenting on his new appointment, Stephen Rankin, said: “It is a privilege to take on this new role as it provides a wonderful opportunity to share the story of our whiskies with new customers and consumers around the world. As we increase our profile in the luxury sector, we will be building key partnerships with organisations that share our passion for provenance, expertise, craftmanship and authenticity. We’ve recently invested in beautiful new facilities above our historic shop in Elgin’s South Street. As the emotional home of the brand since 1895, it is the ideal location to host premium tastings for key customers and consumers.”

Last month, Stephen Rankin selected and unveiled the Private Collection Glenlivet 1943 by Gordon & MacPhail, one of the world’s oldest and rarest single malt whiskies. In February 2018, visitors to Glasgow’s The Whisky Show: Old & Rare, will have the opportunity to meet Stephen and sample a unique selection of limited edition vintages.
