Adam Irvine joined the team in 2018 as Consultant Specialist to support the establishment of the new whisky department at Lyon & Turnbull.
Adam has significant expertise in fine and rare whiskies, born of a personal passion for Scotland’s national drink. The son of a ghillie, he grew up on the banks of the river Spey which flows through Scotland’s largest whisky producing region of Speyside. Distilleries and drams where the back drop to his upbringing, but it was during his studies at the University of Oxford, that his ‘thirst’ for whisky knowledge took hold. In the 20 years since, he has sampled several thousand whiskies, amassed an impressive collection of rare bottles and established his own whisky brand.
