We talk to David Laird, newly appointed Luxury Portfolio Specialist for William Grant.
He explains why people spend thousands on good whisky, why sales are up so much during the pandemic and why even the most expensive whisky is made to be drunk.
Over Balvenie and Glenfiddich 21 we discuss high-end whisky packaging, a $1k cocktail and the importance of drinking the best whiskys sitting down and with as few other people as possible.
He also talks about running a bar in Memphis, his brief professional soccer career and wanting to share a dram with his family.
