With over 20 years’ experience at Willow Park Wines & Spirits, there is no other way to describe David Michiels other than our Resident Scotch Expert. During his time with Willow Park Wines & Spirits, David has been buying and selling exclusive single malts for the store, conducting tastings, as well as teaching classes about the fine art of Scotch Whisky. He has brought many guest Distiller Masters such as; Alex Bruce of Adelphi, Ronnie Cox of Glenrothes, Joanne Brown of Bruichladdich and George Grant of Glenfarclas to Willow Park Wines & Spirits to teach his scotch customers even more about these famous brands.
His most cherished scotch whisky experience was being inducted into the Keepers of the Quaich at the Blair Castle in 2011. The Keepers of the Quaich are a society formed by Scotland's whisky distillers in October 1988 to advance the industry and raise funds for charitable causes in Scotland. Membership is by invitation only and is reserved for individuals judged to have made a significant contribution to the Scotch whisky industry.
In his spare time, he likes to spend much of it outdoors. David is an avid mountain biker and snowboarder and you can almost always find him on the golf course in the summer time.
