New York based Struan Grant Ralph from Speyside, Scotland has recently been appointed the Global Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich, the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky.
Struan, who was born and raised in Speyside, will bring a wealth of whisky industry experience and creativity from across the world into his new role. Having spent five years as a Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador in both the United States and Asia Pacific, Struan will play a pivotal role in driving the iconic single malt brand forward across the world, particularly in emerging markets.
Commenting on the announcement, Struan Grant Ralph says, “Having been a Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich for last few years, I’ve had an incredible opportunity to share the history, heritage and vision of the brand that created the single malt Scotch whisky category. It’s an absolute privilege to step into a global role of such importance and it’s something of a homecoming for me. I’m truly honoured and excited to be working with some of the best ambassadors in the business and look forward to creating an exciting new chapter for Glenfiddich as we continue to push the boundaries in the category.”
