Gordon highlights the significance of storytelling in the whiskey industry and the need to capture the stories of experienced professionals before they retire. He also mentions the exciting future of whiskey, with a focus on quality and the rise of women in the industry. Gordon’s journey into the world of whiskey began during his university days.
