Join Iain McCallum, Master of Malts, as he hosts a very special Bowmore Whisky Dinner prepared by Cork & Fin’s Chef.

Iain first joined Morrison Bowmore at 16 years of age, and was initially employed as a trainee lab technician within the distiller’s Springburn head office. He quickly became committed to a career in the whisky industry and rose through the ranks from qualifying as an organic chemist at 22, his roles included four years as trainee distilleries manager at Auchentoshan, Bowmore and Glen Garioch. This role was hands-on, involving everything from malting and mashing to working the night shift. It was during this period he worked with legendary Bowmore distillery manager Eddie MacAffer and gained a tremendous amount from his expertise. He was later appointed senior blender for Morrison Bowmore then, in addition, distillery manager at Auchentoshan. Iain was believed to be Scotland’s youngest distillery manager when appointed at 30 years of age – certainly the youngest in Auchentoshan’s 185 year history. In his current appointment as Master of Malts, he leads consumer and trade education through tastings, Master Classes and experiential events around the world.
