Brand ambassadors show us the best side of the products they promote and are always in with the newest releases.
It helps to keep a close eye on such ambassadors, as it can be easy to discern the direction a brand is taking through what their ambassadors are doing.
We’ve rounded up the Top 10 Whisky Ambassadors to Follow on Twitter, so you know just where to go to get the best and latest news about your favourite Whiskies.
1. Mark Thomson (@SingleMaltMark)
Mark Thomson, brand ambassador for Glenfiddich, is engaging and fascinating to follow. His twitter takes you with him all across the UK as he promotes and imbibes Glenfiddich up and down the nation. He gives a human face to the brand and embodies the history and style of the malts he promotes. If you follow Mark it doesn’t feel like you’re following a brand ambassador, but rather just someone who really loves Glenfiddich and wants to share that love with his audience.

Colin Dunn, brand ambassador for Johnnie Walker Blue certainly knows his stuff. He loves to show his passion for the brand and Whisky in general and is a great source of knowledge and Whisky inspiration. He also re-tweets a lot about Diageo and their other brands as well, so he’s worth checking out even if you aren’t a fan of Johnnie Walker. Like some of the others in this list, Colin also tweets a lot about wider culture, such as music and food, but always brings it back to Whisky, which is a really nice way to see dramming as multi-dimensional.
