euan-profile

Mr. Euan Douglas Auld, Regional Brand Ambassador, Royal Brackla

Euan grew up in Scotland and developed his interest in whisky while working as a bartender in Edinburgh, fifteen years ago. Having left the UK to take a job in a cocktail bar in Taipei in 2006, his meandering journey culminated in a doctorate in comparative philosophy, culture and education, and time studying and working in Taiwan, Mainland China, Japan and Hong Kong.

While visiting Kyoto University, he was introduced to the rituals and philosophical traditions underpinning the cultivation, preparation and consumption of tea, and subsequently returned to Scotland to research the history and culture of whisky more deeply. His approach to whisky therefore emphasises both savouring its aroma and taste, and understanding the story and personality of the people and places behind it.
