Steve Beal is one of our senior specialists and a founding member of IDS. As an award winner, spirits ambassador, writer, broadcast personality and international spirits competition judge he needs no introduction. Many of us know him as Sr. Whisky Master.
He is a Keeper of the Quaich, a member of the Whisky Magazine Hall of Fame, a recipient of the Spirits Ambassador to the World Award and, for most of his whisky career, was one of Diageo’s fifteen Masters of Whisky.
Steve Beal is a very familiar figure to both the consumers who enjoy them and those in the trade who make and sell fine single malts. He has earned the respect of everyone he meets with his endless energy and passion for all things distilled and whisky in particular.
