Gerard Graham

Gerry Graham grew up surrounded by the origins of whiskey in his native land of Ireland.  It was inevitable that this Ulsterman would work in the world of Uisce Beatha and in his current role as Master of Whisky for Diageo  he loves nothing more than instilling his love for whisky and sharing his knowledge of the spirit with new converts and old hands alike.


In his training as a Master of Whisky Gerry has worked alongside Master Blenders and Distillery Managers from prestigious houses such as Bushmills, George Dickel, Oban and Lagavulin. He has also travelled to numerous distilleries across Scotland and Ireland studying first hand the history of Whisky and the entire production process from malting to maturation.

Gerry also lectures on Whisk(e)y at Florida International University for their beverage and hospitality program.
