For over a quarter of a century, Davin de Kergommeaux has been writing about, speaking about and teaching about whisky. He is the author of four whisky books and is recognized as the world expert on Canadian whisky. Whisky explorations have taken him to four continents to research, pour and speak about whisky. In 2016 the Globe and Mail named him one of the 50 most influential Canadians in food and drink, then in 2018 the New York Times said his significance in the revival of Canadian whisky could not be overstated. His most recent book, Canadian Whisky: The Essential Portable Expert was released in March. He recently became the second Canadian ever to be inducted into the Whisky Hall of Fame in London, UK. He lives in Ottawa with his wife and Lhasa apso pup.
