Douglas Campbell, Tomatin’s Brand Ambassador, has been celebrating being inducted into Whisky Magazine’s â€˜Hall of Fame’ in London little more than a month after receiving a Lifetime Achievement award from America’s Malt Advocate Magazine.
Both publications have chosen to mark Douglas’ 50 years’ service at Tomatin Distillery, having worked there since the age of 15.
The Hall of Fame honour was presented at the Waldorf Hilton in London on 22nd March, following his Lifetime Achievement award in February this year.
Tomatin Distillery released a special limited edition whisky last year in recognition of Douglas’ 50 years’ service. Douglas himself created the single malt using whiskies distilled in each of the 5 decades he has worked at the distillery, calling it â€˜Decades’.
Tomatin’s CEO, Robert Anderson, said in a media release: “Douglas had already contributed 27 years to Tomatin when I took up my post in 1988 and has therefore always been a great inspiration to me.
“â€˜Decades’ was a fitting compliment to Douglas’ participation in the evolution of Tomatin, and these honours further highlight the dedication given by Douglas over the past 50 years. We couldn’t be prouder of him!”
