Trump’s staff to learn about whisky
Staff at Donald Trump’s golf resort are to be trained to offer golfers expert advice on whisky.
Trump International has signed up to The Whisky Ambassador, a new training scheme that aims to boost tourism and the whisky and hospitality industries by developing expertise among bar staff about Scotland’s national drink.
Staff will be able to help holidaymakers develop their whisky tastebuds, by explaining the difference between a peaty Islay and a sweet Speyside.
It also enables staff to outline the origins of whisky and why it has become an internationally renowned tipple and to point tourists in the direction of the nearest distilleries.
Mr Trump has already demonstrated a personal interest in the drink, selecting one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries to create a limited edition whisky for his championship golf course at Menie Estate, near Balmedie, Aberdeenshire.
He picked Glendronach distillery, near Huntly, to supply the commemorative 26-year-old malt for the opening. His £750 million development on the Menie estate on the Aberdeenshire coast is nearing completion. It is due to open next week.
