Dr.Bill Lumsden

Director of Distilling, Whisky Creation & Whisky Stocks

 

Dr. William (Bill) Lumsden is regarded by the malt whisky industry as the pioneer of wood management, producing whiskies that have truly changed the single malt market.

 

Dr. Lumsden, who holds a PhD in Biochemistry, joined the company in 1995 as Glenmorangie Distillery Manager.   Since then he has taken up the mantle of wood finishing and his ongoing experimentation has involved exotic casks such as Fino Sherry, Claret, Côte de Nuits and Sauternes, as well as the Company's core range of wood finishes. He has also further developed the Company's famous slow growth, air-seasoned Ozark Mountain oak barrels, which he routinely uses in the Glenmorangie Ten Years Old and Artisan cask expressions.

 

Dr Lumsden selects casks at various ages in order to experiment. He tours wine regions around the world, searching for the best wood that will complement the whiskies and impart unique characteristics all of their own.

 

By remaining true to his heritage, yet unafraid to experiment, Dr. Lumsden has proven his success by winning many awards and accolades. In 2007 Dr. Bill was awarded Global Ambassador of the Year and Scottish Distiller of the Year, for his worldwide work promoting The Glenmorangie Company's portfolio of brands including Ardbeg 'The Ultimate Islay Malt Whisky.'He has also received the Malt Advocate Magazine Industry Leader of the Year Award in both 2001 and 2006 in recognition of his position as one of the most knowledgeable and forward-thinking distillers in the world.
