Mr Robert­son is an hon­ours grad­u­ate of the He­riot-Watt Brew­ing and Dis­till­ing school. Dur­ing his stud­ies, he took a place­ment at North Bri­tish grain dis­tillery and worked at Ed­in­burgh’s Scotch Whisky Ex­pe­ri­ence as one of its tour guides. Mr Robert­son is not only for­mally ed­u­cated in the art and science of dis­till­ing but is in­no­va­tive and en­thu­si­as­tic about push­ing the bound­aries of the spirit.

He will be re­lo­cat­ing to the is­land to join the team.
