AA Michael

Jonny McCormick described Michael best in the Whisky Advocate:

“Michael is impeccably well-mannered and gracious company, yet he commands instinctive, razor-sharp business acumen too: what better qualities to represent Scotland and Scotch whisky around the world? A Master of the Quaich, Michael is constantly traveling to the fifty or more markets they supply.

His vitality is enviable; with a spring in his step, he’ll greet you with a recent anecdote along the lines of ‘last week, when I was in Russia’… or was it Taiwan, or perhaps Vancouver? No wonder the company was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade in 2013, repeating the honor they received in 2009.”

After a 33-year stint in the family business Michael Urquhart is stepping down into a non-executive directorial role. He’s celebrating in style at Grill 23 in Boston, and he’d like you to join him for a farewell hurrah. You’re all familiar with G&M’s whiskies, and many long-standing customers will have met Michael on his occasional stops in Boston.

Now you can say “Thank you,” “Goodbye” and “Yum.” His official retirement was on his 60th birthday, the 30th of September, and now he’s traveling about enjoying a few well-earned whisky dinners. We’ll enjoy the following with him:
