Instagram is the best social network to get to know the human faces behind the brands. Through the various Whisky brand ambassadors that can be found on Insta, we are given a great look into the world of Whisky and the vast array of culture and experiences that truly make it great.
Here is a collection of 10 of the best Whisky brand ambassadors that you should be following to get a better perspective of the Water of Life.
Mark Thomson is someone you really get to know on Instagram. Not just for the wonderful world of Glenfiddich Whisky, but we also get to see inside his own experiences as a Whisky brand ambassador. This is a great chance to glimpse the personal anecdotes of someone who is passionate about Whisky and to learn more about what the brand means to him.
Founder and Chief of Teeling Whiskey in Ireland, Jack Teeling shows us what it means to run a successful company as well as his deep passion for Whiskey. His images are personal and beautiful. They give us a glimpse into Teeling as a brand and Jack as a person, adding a truly human face to the company. This is a great way to get to know those behind the scenes as well as more about the brand as we view the images Jack posts.

Following Dean Jode on Instagram is like following a mate who just really, really likes Murry McDavid Whisky. He is funny and engaging, posting things that you yourself would post and appreciating Whisky in the way that everyone does. There are no pretension with Dean, and he approaches Whisky not like an expert but like a typical whisky enthusiast. This really brings the brand down to earth and allows us to see it from someone who is on the same level as us. He actually has quite a skill for capturing really great shots and will definitely give you Instagram envy.
4. Alwynne Gwilt AKA Miss Whisky
Like Dean Alwynne Gwilt adds a personal touch to every Instagram post. She not only gives us a glimpse into the life of a Whisky specialist but also gives us a glimpse into her own adventures and journeys. She humanises every drink she experiences and rather than focusing on single expressions gives us a wider experience of life in the Whisky industry. Considering her rise to Whisky stardom as a blogger trying to break down time old beliefs about Whisky and who drinks it, Alwynne shows us the new direction that the industry is taking.
