Like his sister, Kirsty, Ian too has grown up immersed in the Scotch whisky industry. The majority of his career has been in finance in Asia.
His passion for whisky shone through when he founded Hong Kong’s first ever whisky festival, Malt Masters. He ran this for three years before moving back to Scotland in 2016 to join Kirsty in developing the Edinburgh Whisky Academy.
Ian is in charge of developing business with whisky brands and managing the Academy’s finances. This can include networking on the golf course!
