Paul and Mark

Paul McLean recently interviewed Mark Watt of Duncan Taylor, Speyside, a friend of MCLEANSCOTLAND and Angels Whisky Club. Over a dram or two they chatted away asking hard questions on what he does, what he likes and where does he see whisky in years’ time!  In this exclusive interview, Mark gives us a good insight into what he thinks and what he does and how he does it! 
When did you first get involved in the Whisky Industry and why… “I got into the industry by several strokes of luck! I grew up at Macallan distillery so was always surrounded by whisky but it wasn’t until I turned 18yo that I got a job behind the bar at the famous Craigellachie Hotel – Quaich bar which at the time had around 800 whiskies in the bar.  It was then just a short (6 year) jump from their via Edinburgh and Royal Mile Whiskies, the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and Napier University to working for Duncan Taylor where I have been now for nearly 7 years.”
