A Brave New Whisky World

Updated: Oct 9, 2020

I open my laptop to look at the United Airlines website to remind myself of how my airmiles are looking. Seven months ago I wouldn't have done this as the app would keep me posted every time I retrieved a boarding pass for my next overseas whisky adventure. Over the past 15 years I have travelled to 30 countries and seen 42 states in the USA, all in the name of Scotch whisky. Pushing well into my 40’s, the travel and late nights were starting to take their toll and the realisation that the ambassador life had an expiration date became apparent. Taking care of myself had become a priority and I was no longer the last person standing every night. Rewind 5 years and I was the one leading the charge to find the best whisky bars with a late night licence.
