On behalf of Kensington Wine Market, Authentic Wine & Spirits Merchants and Whyte and MacKay I am very pleased and excited to announce that Richard Paterson will be in town on the night of Thursday March 28th to host a very special Dalmore whisky dinner at Vintage Chop House in Calgary, Alberta. Richard Patterson, AKA â€œThe Noseâ€, is the world famous Master Blender for Whyte & MacKay, owners of Dalmore and Jura Distilleries. This is Richardâ€™s first visit to Calgary in more than six years, sinceÂ he hosted our 2nd Annual Burns Supper at the former Polish Combatantâ€™s Association on Kensington Road. If youâ€™ve never seen Richard in action, you owe it to yourself to attend one of his tastings, before this legend retires!
Richard Paterson is one of the worldâ€™s best-known Master Blenders, having travelled the globe extensively as an ambassador for Whyte & Mackay, and most especially Dalmore Distillery. Richard became a Master Blender at the incredibly early age of 26, for many years the youngest in Scotland. Richard began his career as a general production assistant at A. Giles & Company Whisky Blenders & Brokers where he learned the art of blending before joining Whyte & Mackay, one of Scotlandâ€™s leading blenders, distillers and distributors of Scotch whisky. Richard is a former president of The Wine & Spirit Club of Scotland and the Institute of Wine & Spirits in Scotland. He has been awarded The Spirit of Scotland Trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition and is a Diploma Lecturer for Scotch Whisky for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust in London.Â In 2008 Richard coauthored a biography, Goodness Nose.
