Queen’s Honours List 2022
The Wolfcraig team wants to wish our Master Blender and friend, Richard Paterson,
a huge congratulations on receiving an OBE for his services to the Scotch Whisky industry.
Nicknamed, “The Nose”, as a result of his unrivaled talent for assessing whisky, it is no surprise that he has championed the title of Master Blender at Whyte & Mackay for over half a century.
On the day of the medal ceremony at Holyrood, he remarked that he hoped his Father, who was also a Master Blender, was looking down on him and is proud of what he has achieved.
This recognition and honour is beyond deserved to one of the greatest ambassadors of the Scotch Whisky industry today.
Slainte mhath, Richard Paterson OBE (now that has a nice ring to it!)
