Despite six years of post-secondary education, two science degrees, and a promising career in Management Consulting, Spencer decided to leave it all behind for the passionate pursuit of a life in the whisky industry. After taking the leap of faith he packed up his car and drove across Canada and the United States to take a distillation course in Western America. Having visited countless distilleries and cocktail bars across the continent, he returned home eager to begin a new career in bartending. Spencer has bartended at high volume corporate venues, small intimate cocktail lounges, and has managed countless private events. After years behind the wood, he is now representing J.P. Wiser’s and the Northern Border Collection as the Eastern Canada, Canadian Whisky Ambassador. Spencer is a seventh generation, direct descendent of the Gooderham Family who built Canada’s first and largest distillery dating back to 1832.
