Colville toasts new whisky-selling post

Whisky rising star Susan Colville, 31, is returning to her roots as she takes on the newly-created post of European brand development manager for Glenglassaugh distillery.

Brought up on Speyside, she is following in the footsteps of her father, who worked in the industry for 33 years at the Glenrothes distillery in Rothes, while she spent her summers working as a distillery guide.

Colville was crowned “young brand ambassador” at the Icons of Whisky Awards, the first woman to win the title.
