About Vic

Vic’s career progressed through the Malt Distiller management training scheme, taking him through the many and varied areas of production. Beginning as a Production Manager in the distilleries, then to the earlier stages of production in the maltings, and finally to assisting the procurement team in the quality aspects of sourcing of the barley, Vic has over 30 years of experience in all areas of the creation of his country’s favourite export.


Vic’s long experience of the industry, seeing the successes and the disasters, the highs and lows, has given him a wealth of information and anecdotes which promises an accurate, educational and highly entertaining experience.


Unlike so many other ‘experts’ and ‘ambassadors’ in the whisky world Vic has worked in the very heart of the industry, literally from field to bottle. He is uniquely positioned to inform without myth and misconception.


In 2014 Vic took the bold step of leaving Diageo to follow his other passion, pastoring a church, and

The Whisky Minister was born.


Since then, Vic has travelled the world giving whisky production consultancy, and with the Edinburgh Whisky Academy, providing world class whisky education. Closer to home he enjoys giving tutored nosing and tasting sessions, as well as giving talks and presentations covering all areas of production.
