A ‘Quaich’ is the traditional Scots drinking vessel for whisky.
The name comes from the Gaelic ‘cuach’ which means ‘cup’.

In 2011, Andrew was inducted into the Keepers of the Quaich – an exclusive and secretive organization, recognizing individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the international success of Scotch whisky. He is the first Canadian retail expert to be so honoured!
In addition, Andrew writes a newsletter, The Malt Messenger, with almost 5,000 subscribers; conducts regular tastings; offers educational classes, seminars and speaking engagements. Andrew also guides whisky related tours to Scotland via www.fergusonswhiskytours.com. Andrew is the President of the ‘Companions of the Quaich’ Calgary Chapter.
A native of Calgary, Andrew studied Military History at the University of Calgary. He spends much of his free time outdoors, and is especially fond of skiing, hockey, mountain biking and triathlons. In October 2010 he qualified for and competed in the Xterra (offroad triathlon) World Championships in Maui!
