Q: HOW DID YOU BECOME SO INTERESTED IN SCOTCH WHISKY?
My husband enjoys whisky and I thought it was sexy when he ordered it. There's just something different about whisky, especially Scotch – the color, the aroma, it's really alluring. I'd take sips of his and started to like it. It's something you linger over, it's not something that gets rushed.
Q: HOW DID SOMEONE ELSE'S BAR CALL BRING YOU TO JOHNNIE WALKER?
Johnnie Walker discovered that I like it when a man orders Scotch. They asked me if I wanted to know more about what I found so appealing about it, and the rest is history. I've had the pleasure of spending time with our Masters of Whisky at Scotch education events around the world. I'm now confident in what it is that I like about Scotch, and I'm helping other people discover what they like, too.
Q: SO WHAT DO YOU FIND SO BOLD ABOUT ORDERING SCOTCH?
The flavors in Scotch can range dramatically from light and floral to powerful peat and smoke. From what whisky you like, to how you order it – neat, rocks, or with a splash – asking for a Scotch whisky makes a statement. You know what you want and how you want it. That confidence is sexy.
Q: IF WE WERE OUT AT A BAR, WHAT WOULD YOU ORDER?
Johnnie Walker Black Label, on the rocks.
