Bladnoch appoints Dr. Nick Savage as Master Distiller (News)

Dr. Nick Savage to become Master Distiller at Bladnoch Distillery (Lowlands Single Malt Scotch Whisky Macallan News)

At the recent promo event in Hamburg, Bladnoch’s owner David Prior already hinted at the fact that the resurrected Lowlands unit was going to appoint a well-known industry figure as their new master distiller very soon. Today, they let the cat out of the bag on their social media profiles. In July, Scotland’s southernmost production site will welcome no less person than Dr Nick Savage (currently with The Macallan) among their ranks! While an official press release has yet to be issued, the welcome statement on Bladnoch’s Facebook page reads as follows:

“We are delighted to announce Bladnoch Distillery’s newly appointed Master Distiller, Dr Nick Savage. Nick has had an impressive career thus far working with Diageo, William Grant & Sons and most recently, The Macallan. We look forward to Nick joining the team in July as we continue to create award-winning Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.”
