Next up in our Meet the Team series, introducing Gregor Stirling, our European Regional Sales Manager.
“I have always had a passion to work in the spirits industry, and this all started during my student years as a bartender at a local bar. I enjoyed the craic with locals, and the sense of conviviality which beer and whisky brings. I was then lucky enough to take part in a global graduate scheme, which saw me move to Poland for three years, before returning to Scotland where I was based as an international Brand Ambassador.
From there I have been lucky enough to visit some of the most exciting and vibrant whisky markets, and I have well and truly caught the ‘travel bug’, which has led me to my current role with Wemyss Family Spirits. I look forward to working with the award winning Wemyss portfolio!
I love the variety of my role; speaking with and travelling to our partners in markets across Europe with the Wemyss Family Spirits portfolio is hugely rewarding and fulfilling. Not only do I enjoy talking about our great products, but I love sharing the story of Scotch Whisky. I really do hope it’s not too long until we are able to get back to on the road, and to sharing a dram with our keen followers at whisky festivals.
My favourite drink has to be a Balcomie Old Fashioned. I love the sweet warming spice of this Sherry matured expression, which is complemented by the orange zest and angostura bitters in what is one of my go to Friday night tipples.”
