Week 3 of Springbank Whisky School saw us welcome the next group of pupils to our distillery as Aad, Andrew, Bostjan, Edward, Elliot and William arrived to begin their 5 days of hard work in Campbeltown.
These students, from the Netherlands, UK, Slovenia, China, USA and Australia respectively, spent their time here in Argyll working alongside our staff in the malt barns, warehouses, bottling hall and across our distillery.
They also enjoyed a number of tastings and tours with staff from Springbank and our sister companies Glengyle Distillery and Wm Cadenhead’s - and took part in the blending session that forms a vital part of Springbank’s new Barley to Bottle Tour!
At the end of the week and having passed their exam (the exam has a suspiciously high pass rate) each student was presented with their certificate and the blend they had made themselves the previous day.
Our joint Scholars of the Week were Elliot and Andrew - congratulations to both of you!
Once again, we are delighted to know that all our Week 3 pupils go back to their own day-to-day lives as “mini ambassadors” for the company and we hope we will see you all again very soon.
