Global Brand Ambassador Stewart Buchanan

Brown Forman is an American company, best known as the owner of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and bourbon brands Old Forester and Woodford Reserve.

But in 2016, it got into Scotch whisky in a big way, buying The BenRiach Distillery Company, which included three distilleries: Benriach of course, in Speyside; the famous Highlands distillery, Glendronach; and also in the Highlands, but somewhat lesser known, Glenglassaugh.

Stewart Buchanan held his role since 2012, prior to which he was Benriach’s production manager, so he has tremendous insight into these distilleries and the Scotch whisky industry generally.

He was in Australia for the launch of Glendronach 50 Year Old, the oldest expression it’s ever released.

Distilled in 1971, The GlenDronach Aged 50 Years has quietly slumbered over five long decades in rare Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks from the Spanish bodegas of Jerez in Andalucía.
