After 23 years of industry experience with Diageo, in operations and laboratory management, process support and cereal procurement, Vic left for a ‘’higher’’ calling. Affectionately known as The Whisky Minister, Vic combines his own whisky consultancy, Discerning of Spirits, with running a church.
Vic is also a committee member of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky School and Technical Manager for the UK NIR Grain Network.
He has taught at a variety of events including the Orkney Science Festival and Holland’s first ever whisky school. Vic is the course lecturer for our Diploma in Single Malt Whisky and has also contributed his vast industry knowledge to the content of other Edinburgh Whisky Academy courses.
