Kevin Mulcahy brings 20 years of experince in the wine and spirit industry - serving as a retailer and distributor before becoming a Master of Whisky five years ago.
A native of Florida and transplant to Atlanta, Ga. Mulcahy serves the Georgia and Tennessee markets by conducting special events, which educate consumers and spirits industry professionals about the vast portfolio of Diageo Whiskies.
During his tenure as Master of Whisky, Mulcahy has visted and been trained in numerous distilleries all over the world – including George Dickel, Oban, Lagavulin, Bushmills, and Crown Royal – to learn about the distinctive distillation process and flavor profiles of each marque.
One of Kevin’s favorite topics to learn and teach is then intricacy of whisky-making. “ I am always amazed,” he says, “by how the wood used during maturation really affects the color, flavor and taste of whisky; using America oak versus European oak produces two completely different liquids.”
Mulcahy’s favorite part of being a whisky educator is “seeing people’s faces light up as they really begin to understand whisky. After every event, at least one person extends his or her gratitude for the information learned.It’s very special to know that I can introduce someone to a new hobby.”
