Global Master Brand Ambassador
The Glenmorangie Company
Glenmorangie Master Brand Ambassador, David Blackmore is responsible for Glenmorangie’s ongoing brand education and communication initiatives across the USA.
David leads the Glenmorangie USA education program, exciting and educating the American people with the nuances of Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky through tastings and events across the United States.
With five years experience travelling through out the USA and three years at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society in Scotland and London, David is an experienced professional whisky tutor with extensive knowledge and a sophisticated nose that can distinguish single malts from across Scotland at a single sniff. During his time at The Society he was privileged to chair the prestigious “Tasting Panel” responsible for selecting casks for bottling. He has had many of his tasting notes published.
Before moving to the USA, David spent time working alongside the famous Sixteen Men of Tain at the Glenmorangie distillery, and with the whisky creators at our sister distillery, Ardbeg.
