We sat down with Tullamore DEW brand ambassador, John Quinn, to chat about the growing popularity of Irish whiskey in South Africa. Quin is a fascinating individual and owns over 40 years of experience in the dram industry. He was named ‘Whiskey Brand Ambassador’ of the year by Whisky Magazine’s Icons of Whisky awards 2016. If that wasn’t enough to boost his ever expanding ego, John was also named one of the Top 10 most influential people in Irish whiskey by The Spirits Business in 2016.
When it comes to whiskey, from grain to glass, the man is a travelling storehouse of knowledge and he’s ready to share it.
Whisky Live 2017 is taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre from 08 November to 10 November 2017. Whisky Live offers a range of Whisky tasting events year-round to suit every palate, from the ‘just curious’ newcomer to Whisky, to the seasoned connoisseur.
