Desert Island Drams – Mark Gillespie

Mark Gillespie should need no introduction to whisky fans. Mark is the creator, producer and host of WhiskyCast. In 2015 Mark celebrated 10 years of podcasting.  It has more than 40,000 listeners in over 130 countries.  I have been an avid listener to his Podcast for several years and he was one of the reasons I started my website.

I was lucky enough to be able to ask Mark what his Desert Island Dram would be.


If I had to be stranded on a desert island, I’d grab whatever I could get from the beverage cart in First Class as the plane was going down. However, if I could manage to get my hands on my luggage, I’d be happy with whatever bottle I had packed on that trip. To me, whisky is for making memories…and it doesn’t need to be a rare or expensive dram for me to be happy. 

Mark, I like your style. Great answer. Im a great believer in investing in memories and not in collections.

My project was lucky enough to be featured in last weeks episode. For more on this click here.
