Certified Whisky Ambassadors in BCA

Brian Lipstein, Brandon Steiger, and Chris Drucquer successfully passed the only Scotch certification program and had fun doing so! 

Established in 2012, The Whisky Ambassador was the first whisky training course to be accredited by an awarding body. It was also the first accredited course designed exclusively for the Licensed Trade. The program operates globally and only has three certified training programs in the United States.

The guys spent time in and out of classes learning the economic impact of Scotch whisky, how it's made, when and where it all started, nosing and tasting (over 30 Scotches and whiskeys),  and mixers and cocktails. It culminated in a day of practical and written exams where Brian, Brandon, and Chris had to blind taste test and identify the region and the Scotch. They all passed successfully!

So the next time you're in the mood to wet your whistle, turn to Brian, Brandon, and Chris and they can direct you to the right Scotch.
