Jason Clark Talisker Whisky Ambassador

Those of you who have had the pleasure of attending premium whisky events and tastings will have no doubt come across dedicated whisky brand ambassadors for many of the whisky brands available but strangely Diageo who owns 28 Scotch malt whisky distilleries has very few ambassadors dedicated to just one of their whisky brands so it is good news to hear that Diageo Reserve has appointed Jason Clark as the new Brand Ambassador for its premium Scotch whisky, Talisker.

Originally hailing from New Zealand, Jason joins the Diageo Reserve team in the UK and has recently celebrated 20 years in the bar industry. He has represented New Zealand in various global competition finals, including the Diageo Reserve World Class Global Finals in 2013 and 2014 where he placed fourth overall in 2013.

Jason has spent the past three and half years working in Dubai, further honing his skills as a Spirits Ambassador for companies including Diageo Reserve, William Grant, Rťmy Cointreau and Beam Suntory, alongside activations and competitions for Ron Zacapa, Ketel One Vodka, Glenfiddich, Johnnie Walker, Hendrickís and Makers Mark.

Some of Jasonís proudest achievements include designing and managing the UAEís Diageo Reserve World Class programme and recently launching a cocktail book, The Art & Craft of Coffee Cocktails.

As Brand Ambassador for Talisker, Jason will be taking on the important role of raising brand awareness for the liquid, hosting events, tastings and activations such as Taliskerís annual Race to Skye and becoming the new face and spokesperson for the brand. Jason will also work to support the wider Diageo Reserve GB Brand Ambassador team to launch and manage the 2019 World Class programme.

On his appointment Jason commented: "Iím really excited about my appointment as Brand Ambassador for Talisker; Iíve always been a fan and itís a huge privilege for me to be at the forefront of such an established brand. With activations such as the Race to Skye for me to become fully immersed in, I canít wait to begin my journey in the role."

No doubt we will see Jason doing the premium whisky events circuit sharing his knowledge of the Isle of Skye whisky with us in the coming year.
