Jim Beveridge: There’s a small team of 12 whisky-makers who are responsible for all of the whiskies in the Johnnie Walker portfolio. On any given day, there are a range of projects on the go so it’s hard to describe a ‘typical’ day, because many of those projects are at different stages of completion. Some blenders will be nosing samples from our stocks (of over 10 million casks) to choose the right malts and grains for our new and experimental whiskies, while others will be working on our established range. Others could have meetings with brand ambassadors or Johnnie Walker colleagues to discuss things as diverse as tasting notes, research and development, upcoming events, new product initiatives, and media enquiries. Or we could be on the road visiting our wider teams in distilleries and warehouses the length and breadth of Scotland. Our priority is making exceptional whisky and nowadays, to do that, it takes all these jobs and more.
