John McDougall is arguably one of the most experienced Whisky Expert/Master Distiller and one of the best overall judges of Scotch Whisky in the business today. As evidence, he is one of a very rare and elite group of people who have been Production Director or Manager of a distillery in all of the traditionally recognised distilling regions in Scotland.

Distilleries managed by John McDougall:
Springbank (Campbeltown), Laphroaig (Islay) , Balvenie and Tormore (Speyside), Ladyburn (Lowlands).

Whilst at Springbank he became the first intentional distiller of Organic Malt Whisky, having earlier produced the malt from organically grown barley by traditional means in the old distillery floor maltings. In addition to this John has amazingly worked in, or been directly involved in 17 other malt distilleries and/or new distillery projects (Aultmore, Knockdhu, Banff, Teaninich, Imperial, Balmenach, Dailuaine, Glenfiddich, Glenugie, Kinclaith, Ben Nevis, Bruichladdich, Bladnoch and, is involved in the development of Blackwood Distillery in the Shetland Islands. It will be the most Northerly of all Scotland's distilleries and only 180 miles from Norway.

He is also retained as consultant for the development of the Kilchoman distillery on Islay, a distillery in California, one in Brittany, and one in the Kingdom of Fife, (Scotland) 2 Grain distilleries, (Girvan and Strathclyde) and 1 Gin distillery, (Plymouth), a total so far of 25 distilleries during his extremely varied career!! --- This is probably more than anyone else in the industry - He was also General Manager of the massive Long John International warehousing, blending, bottling and distribution complex in Glasgow which, during his time there, was the largest totally integrated operation of it's kind within the industry; stocks of £ 31.5 billion value were stored John has 42 years experience of working within the scotch whisky industry - over 52 years, if you count the childhood and teenage involvement in his father's grain business, selling barley to maltsters and distillers - covering all aspects of production: e.g. barley purchasing, malting, distilling, effluent treatment and disposal, warehousing, blending, bottling, quality control, distribution, and commercial activities such as bulk sales and broking. In recent times he has moved into general consultancy, talks, tastings promotional work etc., and also journalism.

He launched his own John McDougall's "Whisky Life Series" of tiny batch single cask, single malt bottlings, and "Golden Cask Series" with his Partner Jane MacDuff in 2002. These are now sold in 5 overseas markets as well as in selected prestigious outlets in the U.K.
In May 2004 He brought out "John McDougall's Selection", Single Malt, Single Cask, Cask Strength Lowland from Bladnoch Distillery, and which is officially authorised by the Bladnoch Company.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
