Ian McKerrow, Development Manager at Edinburgh Whisky Academy......


Vic has been an excellent instructor for the Edinburgh Whisky Academy – not only is he a real expert on Single Malt Whisky with experience at several distilleries, he is also able to explain the whisky production process to a group of varying levels of knowledge in an extremely engaging manner. High quality feedback from candidates is evidence of the strength of his teaching and delivery. Adept at fielding questions and able to present in a light-hearted manner or debate serious issues depending on the subject, I would wholeheartedly recommend Vic to anyone who wants an experienced expert on whisky production and tasting.

Christos Ioannou - Criterion Wine Tours

Hello Vic, thanks for a truly excellent presentation last Saturday. I gave a feedback form to my customers and asked them to rate out of 10 each distillery visit, meal etc. Everyone gave you a very high mark so I know that the tasting was much appreciated.

I hope to repeat the tour sometime in the future and will certainly call on your services again.

Hi Vic - Please accept a big “thank you” from me for all of your wisdom, insights and encouragement during this educational journey.

Walter – tasting evening


It was an excellent finish to a weekend we had been waiting for for a long time. The whiskies were all good, but some real crackers. Informative and fun as ever.

Tim Ebert, Production Distiller, Starward Whisky, Australia......


We had a great night with Vic. I come from a distilling background but my wife is just starting to discover whisky. Vic tailored the evening to suit us perfectly with some great representative tasting examples of what Scotland’s regions and styles have to offer plus a few wonderful cask samples thrown in too. His network and industry knowledge is extensive and the little insider anecdotes really topped it off for me. I look forward to meeting up with Vic again on my next trip to Scotland. Highly recommended.
