Richard Angove has become the latest Australian to be inducted as a Keeper of the Quaich, the society dedicated to people who work, write or evangelise about the Scotch whisky industry.

The Society hosts an induction ceremony twice a year at Blair Castle in Soctland, where new members are welcomed and a select few members are honoured with the prestigious title Master of the Quaich.

Angove Family Winemakers, and now Vintage House Wine and Spirits, is the official importer of all products in the Glenfarclas range including the exclusive and limited Family Cask expressions, and the Angove and Grant families have a history that goes back over 30 years.

Angove expressed his honour at being inducted into the Keepers of the Quaich and credited the teams at Angove Family Winemakers and Glenfarclas for their roles in the recognition.

Angove told The Shout: “I was honoured and humbled to be inducted as a Keeper of the Quaich last week in Scotland. I was nominated by John Grant, owner and Chair of Glenfarclas, one of Scotland’s finest Single Malt Whisky producers.

“Our family as well as our entire sales, marketing and production team has been importing the amazing range of Glenfarlcas whisky for over 30 years and we have a deep affection for the brand, its product and people.

“I feel the award is real reflection of our entire teams efforts in promoting and growing the sales and brand of Scotch whisky over such a long period of time. It was an amazing experience that I will remember for a lifetime.”
