Richard Paterson

The ever-immaculate figure of Richard has injected a unique level of showmanship into the business of demystifying and marketing Scotch. He has worked steadfastly to illuminate the art of blending, engaging consumers all over the world through his charismatic, flamboyant and energetic presentations and Masterclasses

But to consider Richard Paterson a showman is to underestimate his very real skills and achievements as a blender and a custodian of some of the oldest and rarest single malts in existence

Above all Richard is passionate and sincere about whisky, and he has been responsible for developing a highly-regarded, award-winning range of aged Whyte & Mackay blends and numerous limited edition expressions of his beloved Dalmore, while also working with the company’s Isle of Jura and Fettercairn single malts

Richard Paterson is justly proud of being a thirdgeneration whisky blender, with both his father and grandfather heading the former family company of WR Paterson Ltd
