|New Bladnoch Master Distiller: Dr Nick Savage|
Having previously worked for Diageo and William Grant & Sons, Nick’s most recent role was as Master Distiller at The Macallan, where he led the Whisky Mastery team, and played a key role during the launch of the brand’s new distillery and visitor experience in June 2018.
Commenting on the news, Nick, said: “The vision and ambition shown by David Prior and the team at Bladnoch Distillery, together with the phenomenal efforts since 2015 with the re-generation of the historical site, played a huge part in my decision to join the Bladnoch business. The opportunity also allows me a new challenge in single malt lowland Scotch whisky from a 200 year old distillery. Combined with the passion and drive that the Bladnoch team have for the ultimate quality, I’m extremely excited to be a part of the amazing future of the brand.”
Nick will officially join Bladnoch on July 1st, working with newly appointed Distillery Manager Neil Bulloch.
