Highwayman whisky is the hard work and lifelong commitment of Dan Woolley.
Dan has been one of the modern faces of whisky over the last ten years, holding one of the most sought-after Whisky ambassador roles in Australia. Throughout this role he travelled countless hours, covered thousands of Highway miles with a bag full of whisky, educating whisky lovers – He was the Highwayman of whisky. This role gave him a backstage pass to globally renown distilleries throughout Scotland (especially Islay), Kentucky, Tasmania and Japan. These journeys developed a deeper, hands on understanding of production and a huge passion for whisky maturation.
