Dan Volway, Canadian Brand Ambassador – West Coast
The Macallan, Highland Park, Famous Grouse, Cutty Sark and Brugal Rum
Dan Volway is used to being an expert. With more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry as a trained Sommelier and instructor with the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers at Niagara and George Brown College, it’s fair to say that Dan’s palate is exquisitely refined.
For years Dan had imbibed on fine wines until a longtime friend introduced him to scotch whisky and effectively converted his formerly grape-focused palate to appreciate the nuances of fine hand-crafted scotch. As his repertoire expanded, Dan fell madly in love with The Macallan, Highland Park, Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark – brands known across the globe for their heritage, quality and unrivalled approach to whisky making. When the opportunity arose to represent his favourite scotch portfolio in Canada, Dan jumped at the chance and was willing to move across the country from Toronto to Vancouver to fulfill his duty as Brand Ambassador.
Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Dan’s role is to connect with like-minded individuals, groups and establishments by exposing the virtues of the whiskies he’s been charged to represent. His schedule is filled with meetings and events held by various whisky appreciation groups, where he works on building relationships and cultivating connoisseurs who share the very same passion for whisky that attracted him to the business.
