Whyte & Mackay records follow-up podcast seriesBy Alice Brooker
Glasgow-based producer Whyte & Mackay has revealed the next series of its podcast Live from the Sample Room, which spotlights whisky investment.
Hosted by journalist Abbie Moulton, Live from the Sample Room was launched in 2020. The podcast series aims to explore topics in the world of whisky investment ‘through the lens of The Dalmore Highland Single Malt’.
Subjects covered range from the most lucrative bottlings to the challenges around investment opportunities, including the counterfeit market.
“It was an honour to work alongside The Dalmore’s incredibly talented team to host the latest series of the Live from the Sample Room podcast and learn from so many of our guests along the way,” Moulton commented.
“Unlocking the doorway to whisky investment has been a fascinating journey and we look forward to our listeners embarking on the journey with us to discover what the world of whisky has to offer.”
In the new three-episode series, The Dalmore’s team will explore the brand’s background with guests including Jonny Fowle, the director and senior specialist for spirits at auctioneer Sotheby’s. Entrepreneur Arnold Ma will also provide an insight on the role that the emerging Chinese market plays in rare whisky.
Kieran Healey-Ryder, series producer for Whyte and Mackay, said: “Rare single malt whisky is enjoying a renaissance, and there is a genuine excitement around iconic single malts such as The Dalmore. This series we have been fortunate to assemble a number of leaders in their fields to share fascinating first-hand insight into the world of Rare Whisky.”
The new series is available on all major podcast platforms in fortnightly instalments, with the next episode going live tomorrow (8 February).
Last year, the brand partnered with artist Rob Mulholland to mark the expansion of its Scottish Oak Programme.
