Global celebration of Scotch Whisky

At Blair Castle in Blair Atholl on Monday the 9th October the Keepers of the Quaich will induct 45 new members in a private ceremony. This is to celebrate the global success of Scotch Whisky.

Keepers of the Quaich was established by the Scotch Whisky to recognise the brilliant commitment of those who produce or promote the worlds finest spirit. New Keepers must have worked in the industry for a minimum of five years.

Over 2,600 men and women from 100 countries have been granted the honour.

“Scotch Whisky was, and remains, the first global spirit and Keepers of the Quaich exists to recognise and celebrate the exceptional contribution of people working in all aspects of the industry, all over the world.” said Peter Prentice, Chairman of the Society. “At the ceremony we inducted new Keepers from no less than 19 different countries which demonstrates the continued popularity of Scotch Whisky.”

Keepers of the Quaich supports international chapters of the society in key export markets including Germany, Brazil and South Africa. “We were delighted that members of the newly-inaugurated Nordics chapter were able to attend the ceremony for the first time,” Mr Prentice added.
