Rachel Barrie – A Woman on the Move

“I wasn’t looking, but somehow you found me” sang Carly Simon and that seems to be the way Morrison Bowmore Distillers (MBD) achieved the Scotch Whisky coup of last year, recruiting Glenmorangie’s Rachel Barrie to the post of Master Blender – a newly created post. It came as stunning news to many in and around Scotch Whisky in late 2011 to learn that Rachel had skipped cities to work at MBD, owners of Bowmore, Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch. Rachel had been at Glenmorangie over 16 years and has been responsible for some of the wonderful expressions from there.
