Paul Dempsey is a familiar face to many whisky fans from various UK and international whisky festivals. Paul’s early days in the whisky business began with work for brands including Glen Grant, Arran, Suntory/Bowmore and Bruichladdich before an eight year spell as Commercial Manager for the Speyside distillery’s SPEY single malt whisky.
Paul’s tireless work for SPEY led to him being Highly Commended in the Scotch Whisky Brand Ambassador of the Year category at the Icons of Whisky awards in 2021, and this year he joined Brave New Spirits as Sales and Marketing Director, applying his talents to the company’s single cask and high end small batch whiskies, all while judging at whisky and spirits competitions including the World Whisky Awards, Scottish Field Awards and the illustrious Concours Mondial de Bruxelles.
I enjoyed a good selection of whiskies and the presentation was also very good. Hope to do it again soon.
