She will also help develop a new English whisky for the Peaky Blinder range, which will be produced at Halewoodís new £1 million distillery in Birmingham, West Midlands.

Kirstie has a PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Glasgow Caledonian University and has accumulated over 13 years experience in the whisky business, she has joined Halewood Artisanal Spirits from Glen Moray distillery and its parent company La Martiniquaise-Bardinetís where she was responsible for Glen Moray single malt whisky as well as the company's extended whisky portfolio, including world-famous Scotch whisky blends Cutty Sark, Label 5 and Sir Edward's.

Kirstie only joined Glen Moray/La Martiniquaise-Bardinetís back in October 2019 so her stay there has been short lived, previous to that she was with Distell International where she was Senior Blender for three years and was responsible for their single malts Bunnahabhain, Deanston and Tobermory as well as the company's blended whiskies.

You will find the Halewoods whisky portfolio including Crabbie, Samuel Gelstonís, The Pogues, Aber Falls and Peaky Blinder available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
