Today we hear from Dhavall Gandhi.
Dhavall Gandhi is recognised as one of the industry’s most celebrated whisky makers. Following time working in operations at Heineken, Dhavall moved into a role with The Macallan where he realised his ambition to become a whisky maker. Quickly establishing himself as one of the industry’s rising stars, in 2016 he departed The Macallan for a role at what was then a little-known distillery in Cumbria. Six years later and The Lakes Distillery was put firmly on the map by Dhavall who at the end of 2021, took the step away from the distillery, launching his own business: Dhavall Ghandi Whisky.
