Edrington has appointed a global marketing manager for The Macallan single malt whisky.

His depth of experience and insight is first class and I am sure he will bring great thinking and charisma to The Macallan global brand team. We are at entering a crucial time for the brand and Jaume’s mix of spirit and luxury knowledge will undoubtedly help us realize our ambitions for this exceptional brand.”
