Rachel Barrie (pictured left), master blender at the BenRiach Distillery Company, was awarded an honorary doctorate at the University of Edinburgh on Monday.

Barrie is the first female master blender to receive the award, which recognises her expertise and services to the whisky industry.

She said: “This is one of the proudest moments of my life. My quest has been to unlock a deeper understanding of the distillation, maturation and provenance of Scotch, to develop and nurture richness of character and taste and celebrate it with the world; it’s a great privilege to be recognised in this endeavour.”
