SOW EP 36 - Lauren Oliver, the 'Mash Lass' of Glengyone Distillery

SOW EP 36 - Lauren Oliver, the 'Mash Lass' of Glengyone Distillery

This week's guest on Spirits of Whisk(e)y is Lauren Oliver of Glengoyne Distillery in Dumgoyne, Scotland. Dubbed the "Mash Lass," Lauren is the first woman to serve as Mashhouse Production Operator at Glengoyne and, for that matter, one of comparatively few women working in Scotch whisky. Listen and learn how Oliver, a native of Greater Glasgow, transitioned from a planned career in graphic design to a life in whiskey. Then hear how Glengoyne's 21-Year-Old Single Malt got Chef Louise "Weezy" Leonard craving a big wedge of creamy, slightly stinky, blue cheese, swathed in a layer of buttery puff pastry, served with fresh, ripe apples, and the whole lot drizzled with honey and fresh thyme!
