Mitch founded CopperCairn from his desire to combine two of his favourite passions; whisky and adventure!  With 15 years’ experience within the Scotch whisky industry he has worked for some of the largest brands in the world, including the likes of Johnnie Walker and Glenfiddich.  These roles have taken him around the world educating and entertaining thousands of people.  He has hosted training sessions, judged on international tasting panels and written articles on whisky. He is also a Keeper of the Quaich, an honour bestowed on a select number of people for their contribution to the whisky industry. Mitch is an experienced paddleboarder, winning a competition or two, and has paddled the length of Scotland from Fort Augustus to Inverness along the Caledonian Canal and Loch Ness. A keen snowboarder, he has hosted whisky tastings in some of the most renowned ski resorts in the World.
