Callum - Oban Distillery

Tell us a bit about yourself and your role at Oban Distillery?

I have worked for the company for 8 years now and have been at Oban for just over 2.5 years. I joined the business after completing a degree in Chemical Engineering at The University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. 

I knew when I joined the drinks industry that I wanted to work with and eventually become the manager of one of Scotland’s prestigious malt whisky brands. It’s great that I can say I have had that opportunity at this stage in my career. I love my work at Oban as every day is different; approaching challenges and celebrating success with my team every day. I have enthusiastic and talented people who work alongside me at Oban and they make it fun and exciting to come to work every day.

What are you most looking forward to doing in Scotland?  

As with most people I am looking forward to spending quality time with my family and friends. As a family we have always holidayed on the islands with Arran and Islay being favourites to visit when they allow visitors to return to their shores again. I may even pick up a wee dram when I’m there too.

What is your most memorable experience in Scotland?

It has to be the scenery for me; we are extremely lucky and spoiled to live in such a beautiful country. Sometimes when I am driving, I just stop my car at the side of the road to remind myself how lucky I am.
