Holly became a single malt enthusiast during her time working in retail store design in New York City. Not finding an education that was fitting to further her knowledge of whisky, she created her own study program by visiting over 130 distilleries throughout the world to interview producers, evaluate whiskies, and learn everything she could about the industry.
Holly has worked at Knockdhu Distillery (anCnoc) and Gordon’s Fine Wine & Spirits, and is currently the North American Brand Ambassador for the Dewar’s Single Malt Portfolio, which includes Aberfeldy, Craigellachie, Aultmore, Royal Brackla, and The Deveron.
